Elisabeth Chojnacka

Polish harpsichordist Elisabeth Chojnacka first made her name when she emigrated to France and performed award winning interpretations of classical harpsichord music. She soon immersed herself in rigorous 20th-century classical music, performing compositions by Ligeti, Xenakis and Penderecki, among many others. Many compositions have been written specifically for her.

Chojnacka has been performing with percussionist Sylvio Gualda since 1981 and is often a featured soloist in the Xenakis Ensemble.
