William Cuthbertson

william Cithbertson at Valdemosa William Cuthbertson has been passionately interested in the music of Frederik Chopin since his schooldays. After his studies at the Royal Academy of Music his love for Chopin lead him to Poland, where he studied for two years with Professor Ludwik Stefanski in Krakow on a Polish government scholarship.

In 1996 he performed a series of Chopin recitals in Solothurn, Switzerland (these concerts were in aid of new windows for the Rudolf Steiner School there, and the concerts brought in 11,000 SFR).

In 2010 he played the same cycle in Waldkirch to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Chopin’s birth.
