Barbara Drazkov Drążkowska

Barbara Drazkov (PL/BE) is a pianist known for her unconventional approach to classical music.

She creates her recognizable artistic language combining mostly contemporary repertoire with performative and theatrical elements, e.g. playing along with 2 Edison phonographs (WAX MUSIC) or with night vision goggles in complete darkness (INVISIBLE PIANIST), not to mention her bicycle concert tours within Europe (GREEN PIANIST).

Having lived in Poland, Germany, Spain and currently in Belgium - Barbara Drazkov gained
a strong position in the European artistic scene, working with the most prominent artists
and theatre companies (e.g. Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Leszek Możdżer, David Dawson,
Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London, Marìa Pagés Company in Madrid, Holland National
Ballet in Amsterdam)

Barbara’s constant search for new ways of expression led her also to collaboration with
traditional musicians from India, Japan, Korea, Congo, as well as flamenco and tango
She has performed at festivals and concert venues around the world: e.g. Sydney Opera
House, NCPA in Beijing, Rome Auditorium, Ars Musica in Brussels, Dance Salad in
Houston, Enter Enea Festival in Poznań.
