Biography

Born in Poland, Dominika Maszczynska performs on a variety of keyboard instruments including fortepiano and harpsichord as well as modern piano. She graduated with distinction from the Royal College of Music and the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice.

As both a soloist and continuo player, Dominika has performed with various orchestras and groups including The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, Zabrze Philharmonic Orchestra, Florilegium, De Profundis, Volantes Orchestra, I Fagiolini and Brecon Baroque.

Her fortepiano performance of Beethoven’s 5th Piano Concerto (with the Volantes Orchestra and Jos van Immerseel) was well received by the Czech press: Dominika impressed with her energetic expression, musicality and technical dexterity. Her connection and communication with the orchestra were excellent. (Karla Hofmannová/klasikaplus.cz).

An experienced performer, she has played numerous concerts in different countries across Europe (Spain, France, Italy, Germany, UK, Poland, Czech Republic, Netherlands) and South America (Bolivia). Her recordings were broadcast by BBC Radio 3 and Polskie Radio program 2 among others.

Dominika regularly performs on original instruments (Cobbe Collection, Horniman Museum, RCM Museum, St. Cecilia’s Hall, Holburne Museum) and has made recordings for Erddig/National Trust on the original Broadwood square piano and Collard & Collard piano from 1876.

In 2022 she was selected as the only keyboard player for a European tour with the EEEmerging+ Academy orchestra led by Ophélie Gaillard. She regularly performs with a baroque ensemble  Liturina, which has recently been selected for the Philip and Dorothy Green Artists scheme in association with Making Music.

Besides early music repertoire, she is also interested in exploring contemporary music written for period instruments. In 2021, she performed the Jazz Harpsichord Concerto by the late Joseph Horovitz. In preparation for this concert in the Britten Theatre, London, she collaborated with the composer himself.
