"In terms of blows, for me the coup de foudre was Bartosz Glowacki. By instinct, a solo accordion is not my top choice for a good night out. Life deals its shocks, however. (...) the young Pole creates a poignant and distinctive sound world."

Fiona Maddocks - The Observer

Bartosz is a City Music Foundation Artist and has received numerous awards from the Zygmunt Zaleski Foundation, the Countess of Munster Musical Trust, the Biddy Baxter and John Hosier Music Trust, the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of Poland. He was selected to be part of the ‘Open Space’ residency at Snape Maltings in 2016 and recently won the ‘Sir John Manduell Prize’ at the Bromsgrove International Competition.


Student of Professors Grzegorz Bednarczyk and Andrzej Smolik, Bartosz was offered a place under the tutelage of Owen Murray at the Royal Academy of Music where he graduated with honours and received the Regency Award in 2016.


Bartosz plays an accordion by Pigini (model Sirius Millennium) and he would like to thank the City Music Foundation for their financial and artistic support.
