A prizewinner at the Chopin International Competition in Warsaw in 1937, he sat on the jury of that prestigious event nine times, from 1949 to 1995).

He developed a fine career as a pianist, performing across Europe, in Japan and the South America.

But, as you will hear when reporter Michal Kubicki interviewed Artur Szklener, director of the Chopin Institute, it was as editor-in-chief of the National Edition of Chopin’s Works that Jan Ekier became an international authority.
