Aleksandra Myslek is a Polish pianist currently living in London. Since an early age she has been committed to piano and music above all, which brought her to receive prizes in national and international competitions; she was recognized for performances of Chopin and Schumann in particular.
In 2010 Aleksandra moved to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music where she was awarded a generous scholarship. Prof. Christopher Elton was her first mentor, followed by prof. Hamish Milne who worked with Aleksandra during her master’s degree. She was also hugely influenced by the advice she gained from Fou Ts’ong, Ferenc Rados, and Leon Fleisher, as well as violinists György Pauk, Rodney Friend, and Thomas Brandis.
As a student, Aleksandra was involved in a great amount of extracurricular work. She studied conducting for four years, did a comprehensive repetiteur course and was involved in organizing a part of the Academy Piano Festival. Having won two chamber music prizes involving song accompaniment and duo work, she is now chiefly focused on chamber music with violin especially, while continuing her work on solo repertoire. Previous performances include recitals, chamber music and concerto appearances in halls like Anvil in Basingstoke, Bedford Corn Exchange, London’s Drapers’ Hall, Elgar Room, as well as performances in France, Spain, Poland, and Germany.
