„Anna Gorecka proved herself an outstanding pianist at her Wigmore Hall debut last night. Gorecka’s talent is more than just a result of having had lessons since the age of four. There is God-given ability here. She plays ferociously (…) If Gorecka threatens to exeed the speed limit, it was only out of youthful exuberance and the joy of the dance. In Brahms’s second Piano Sonata, the great black Steinway seems to retreat under her impassionate touch. (…) The best she saved until last. Her performance of the middle section of Ravel’s masterpiece Gaspard de la Nuit, with its funeral gait sloping round a constantly chiming solitary B flat, was one of the most movingpieces of piano playing I have ever heard.”


„Gorecka is a pianist of passion and energy, occasionally recalling Martha Argerich. She is already a genuine virtuoso, with technique to burn. It’s evident at once in Schumann’s “Papillons”, notable for flashing octaves brilliantly executed (…) The sequence reached a natural conclusion in Ravel’s “Gaspard de la Nuit”. Miss Górecka gave a fine account of its hovering, luminous textures, but seemed most at home in the more restless, turbulent passages, with their pyrotechnical challenges. These were splendidly played, setting the seal on a recital that was a pianistic triumph.”

„COUNTRY LIFE” (Geoffrey Smith)

„Anna Gorecka in Prokofiev’s piano concerto fascinated us with her musical maturity and very high technique.

„GAZETA WYBORCZA” (Bogumiła Mika)

“Capriccio by M. Gorecki found in Anna Gorecka a marvelous interpreter who not only managed to convey its basic line but also all its subtle nuances. Precise quality of sound, high intelligence, musical sensitiveness are the main features of this outstanding pianist”


"The often preached truth that accessibility of music relies largely on the way it is performed is confirmed in this case. This time the performance was – I have to say it once again – masterful. The pianist Anna Gorecka with her rendition of the Preludes op. 1 and Piano Sonata op. 6 emphasised duality of the music composed by her brilliant father: prayerful contemplation and violent spontaneity at the same time".

(Anna Woźniakowska)

"Little Requiem” op.66 [by H. M. Gorecki] was performed by the composer's daughter, the pianist Anna Gorecka, together with the Warsaw Philharmonic. From the very first sounds of the tubular bells and piano it was clear that Wit and Gorecka understood each other perfectly at the stage. The pianist was playing with great confidence, she wasn't afraid of expressive contrasts of piano and forte, which added distinctiveness to the piece".

GAZETA.PL (Joanna Lach)

Anna Gorecka (...) performed superbly in the piano antipodes. An early classical or rather rococo style (...) was mastered by her to perfection. She was also in her element while performing the twentieth century works. They were performed with an unprecedented flourish and impulsive temperament, but also with and appreciation of the lyrical parts."

(Aleksandra Konieczna)

"The album with Karol Szymanowski's compositions (...) is a credit to the violinist and the pianist Anna Gorecka. (...) These are indeed, as one can say, impeccable performances (...) listening to these renditions is a real pleasure."

„RUCH MUZYCZNY” (Józef Kański)

"Anna Gorecka came out excellently in the piano concerto by her father. She presented a dynamic personality harmonizing with a slightly sharp character of this interesting piece.”

„GAZETA WYBORCZA” (Aneta Oborny)

"Anna Gorecka performed this nearly half-an-hour long cycle ["Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Haendel" by Brahms] excellently, displaying complete mastery over the whole piece, perfectly balancing more contemplative and dramatic moments – the latter ones in her interpretation gripped the audience with dynamism and verve."

(Marek Brzeźniak)

"It may be surprising that the brilliant piano version of Harpsichord Concerto by Gorecki – the same but completely different work – has remained in the shadow of the harpsichord version, yet no doubts it finally found a splendid interpreter in the person of the composer's daughter Anna Gorecka who has the chance to compete with Elżbieta Chojnacka”.

„RUCH MUZYCZNY” (Olgierd Pisarenko)

"Concerto for piano by Gorecki thrillingly performed by the composer's daughter, was particularly impressive".


"At the beginning of the recital there were interpretations of Scherzo b flat minor, Ballade g minor and Sonata no. 2 by Frédéric Chopin. (…) Experience, expression, interpretative power as well as the incredible femininity of the artist emanating from each sound of the music enchanted and united the audience, who in gratitude for the extraordinary talent and masterful skills rewarded her with a long-lasting standing ovation"

„EL MAŃANA” (Noelia Salazar)

"Anna Gorecka quickly made herself known to the gathered music lovers from London with a virtuoso performance of an ambitious repertoire. Selected with precision, it enabled one to appreciate an excellent technique combined with mature interpretation (...) I was one of many others who were leaving the concert hall impressed by the highly talented pianists. (...) The best evidence of Anna Gorecka success was sustained applause, to which she replied with only one encore (repeated mooore! could be heard in the hall)".

„TYDZIEŃ POLSKI”, LONDYN (Juliusz L. Engler)

„Fascinating how these two very fine artists {Gorecka and Bąkowski} manage with equal convinction the glorious afflauts of the (Szymanowski’s) Sonata and the perfumed garden that is the Lullaby and Roxana’s Song.(…) Lastly come the Three Myths (…) These are wonderfully played by the duo who masterfully catch the steady yet responsively pliant pacing and mystical communion inherent in these pieces. The quintessential illusion of the performance being swayed by the spontaneity of the moment is fully intact.”
