PRESS QUOTES FOR “STEFAN BEDNARCZYK SINGS NOEL COWARD”

WHAT’S ON STAGE (Michael Coveney):
“…A remarkable solo show….which both reveals and redefines the nature of the man’s genius. Bednarczyk comes across as both authentic re-interpreter and skilled champion.”

MUSICAL THEATRE REVIEW (Craig Glenday)
“Can there be a better interpreter of Noel Coward operating in the UK  – in the world –
than Stefan Bednarczyk ?……. Bednarczyk is a consummate performer – his piano playing is flawless and he exudes an irresistible charisma…..This is cabaret at its finest.”

THE STAGE (Paul Vale)
“Listening to Bednarczyk play and sing classics such as Parisian Pierrot, London Pride and especially Evening In Summer in the strikingly evocative surroundings of Crazy Coqs has to be one of the great pleasures of a visit to the capital. His choice of songs is mindful of an audience’s need to be entertained, while his individual interpretation of the musical numbers is exemplary.”

THE AUSTRALIAN ( on “COWARD” at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival)
“….It was Stefan Bednarczyk who impressed the most, with his exceptional performing abilities…….. superb incisiveness and alive-ness to every nuance of intellectual wit, irony and self-disclosure.”

THE SCOTSMAN
“Noel Coward was much more than just the archetypal Englishman, and Bednarczyk knows “Why The Show Must Go On ” – and how to perform it, brilliantly.

PRESS QUOTES FOR “AN EVENING OF FLANDERS AND SWANN”

INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE (Sheridan Morley)
“… Entirely alone at the piano, Stefan Bednarczyk is the best Flanders and Swann since Flanders and Swann themselves”

THE TIMES (Clive Davis)
“A one-man-show that demands the widest possible audience.”

METRO  (Warwick Thompson)
“Bednarczyk’s detailed characterisations and careful comic timing bring the songs to life
beautifully – and there are even moments of such tender, fragile pathos that you want to leave them hanging in the air forever.”
