Elzbieta Bilicka’s playing has been praised for “organic combination of thought and emotion” (Katarzyna Popowa-Zydron) plus “artistry and energy with the highest professionalism” (Cathal Breslin). She has been described as “an unusual and interesting artist” (Adam Rozlach) and “an intensely musical being – a highly refined musical temperament” (Michael Moran). Elzbieta holds a Master of Arts degree in Piano Performance from the Feliks Nowowiejski Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz (class of Katarzyna Popowa-Zydron, Agata Nowakowska-Gumiela and Alberto Nose). She is currently a DMA candidate at her Polish alma mater. Between 2016 and 2018, she studied under Nelson Goerner at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Geneve in Switzerland. Elzbieta is a prizewinner of various international piano competitions. The latest and most important of them are: Walled City Music International Online Piano Competition in Derry, Northern Ireland, 2020 (1st prize), Putra International Online Piano Competition in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 2020 (1st prize), the 10th International Ignacy Jan Paderewski Piano Competition in Bydgoszcz, Poland, 2016 (laureate title) and Polish Chopin Piano NIFC Competition in Katowice, Poland, 2016 (3rd prize). In 2018, she was awarded the ‘Young Poland’ Scholarship of the Polish Minister of Culture. Elzbieta has performed solo and with orchestras in many cities of her native Poland, as well as in Italy, Austria, Switzerland and USA. Her recitals have been featured on Polish Radio Koszalin, Polish TV Culture and BBC Radio. In July 2021, Centaur Records released her debut solo album: Lights and shadows, featuring music by Chopin, Ravel, Scriabin and Szymanowski. Next to performing, Elzbieta also writes articles on music and neuroaesthetics (neurological studies of aesthetics in art). She has been published in Universitas Gedanensis (2020, issue 58) and Art and Philosophy, a member of the International Association for Aesthetics (2021, issue 53). In her free time, Elzbieta is a passionate baker and hiker. Elzbieta joined the Piano Faculty of the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University in Logan (UT) in May 2019.
