“We had the opportunity to admire a tone of exceptional fullness and vibrancy…”

Financial Times, London

“His big sonorous tone immediately impressed in the opening Tempo di Ciacona, as did his incisive attack in the Fuga. The Melodia was full of veiled nocturnal romance.”

The Times, London

“…Fascinerende versie van de Tweede Sonata van Bartok.”

De Nieuwe Gazet, Antwerp

“On voit rarement un musicien d’apparence aussi tranquille, et aussi naturellement expressif. La musique semble sortir de lui comme d’une source ; il ignore vraisemblablement tout problème technique. Le son est magnifiquement large, chaleureux, lumineux. Il a joué le très beau Concerto No.1 de Karol Szymanowski. Son interprétation se classe parmi les plus belles par sa générosité, sa couleur, sa maitrise qui libère totalement l’intense poésie de la partition.”

La Libre Belgique, Brussels

“Musikalität, technische Brillanz und Virtuosität. Adam Korniszewskis machten Beethovens Violinkonzert zu einem wirklichen musikalischen Erlebnis.”

Braunschweiger Zeitung

“In brillantem still entwickelte er die Entfaltungsmöglichkeiten des instruments mit einem verblüffenden Gespür für dessen spezifishe Klangsinnlichkeit. In bewunderungswürdiger Musikalität bot er ein schlankes, reaktionsschnelles und abgestuftes Spiel.”

Neue Ruhr Zeitung, Essen

“Le public patient, fut récompensé par un fort beau récital de violon seul, ou Korniszewski s’attaqua à la Sonate en sol mineur puis a l’imposante et exigeante Partita no. 1 de Jean-Sébastien Bach. On l’y sent parfaitement maitre do son instrument et il possède ce style rigoureux, précis, juste et analytique que réclament impérieusement ces pages. Le son chaleureux, l’art du phrasé, la clarté du contrepoint présidèrent à ces pages interprétées avec la meilleure des maestrie…”
