The Piano Department, created in 1980 and headed by Prof. Jerzy Sulikowski for 25 years, boasts a staff of some world-known pianists. The second prize winner at the 10th International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition, and the winner of a number of other piano competitions, such as those in Prague, Geneva or Brussels, Prof. Tatiana Shebanova, had her class in the Department in the years of 1988-2011. The celebrated pianist and distinguished professor of the Moscow Conservatoire, Mikhail Voskresensky, is a guest professor here. Dozens of students and graduates of the Department have attracted public acclaim at national and international competitions. Concert-wise, the Department collaborates with the Frédéric Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice. It is also the organizer and co-organizer of such events as the International Ignacy Jan Paderewski Piano Competition in Bydgoszcz or the Paderewski Piano Academy summer courses held in the Ostromecko palace.
