In 2005, at the tender age of 20, Polish pianist Rafal Blechacz became the sole recipient of all five first prizes at the 15th International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. ABC News reported that one of the judges felt he "so outclassed the remaining finalists that no second prize could actually be awarded." He makes his Vermont debut with a program featuring Bach's Partita no. 3, Beethoven's op. 10/3, Szymanowski's first sonata, and two polonaises and a scherzo by Chopin.
