Daniel Rybicki is a Polish soloist and chamber musician, holding the position of the Principal Flute in the Symphony Orchestra of the Ignacy Jan Paderewski Pomeranian Philharmonic Hall in Bydgoszcz (Poland).
He graduated from the Feliks Nowowiejski Academy of Music in Bydgoszcz, having been a student in Prof. Jadwiga Kotnowska’s class. He furthered his flute studies with Prof. Berten D'Hollander at the Hogeschool voor Wetenschap en Kunst Lemmensinstituut in Leuven (Belgium), where he was subsequently awarded the degree of Master of Arts with distinction in 2010.
While still a student he attended regular classes and took part in masterclasses given by such distinguished teachers as Robert Winn from the Hochschule für Musik in Cologne, William Bennett from the Royal Academy of Music in London, Susan Milan from the Royal College of Music in London, Andras Adorjan from the Munich Musikhochschule, Carlo Jans from the Luxembourg Conservatoire, or Phillip Bernold from the Conservatoire National de Musique et de Danse in Lyon. Daniel has worked with a number of renowned orchestras, among them the Polish Radio National Symphony Orchestra in Katowice, the Capella Bydgostiensis Chamber Orchestra, the Capella Thoruniensis Chamber Orchestra, the Polish Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra, the Belgian Chamber Orchestra, or the ProMusica Music Agency Orchestra.
With these orchestras he has had an opportunity to perform in some of the best-known European concert venues: the Tonhalle in Zurich, the Konzerthaus and Musikverein in Vienna, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the concert hall of the Münchner Philharmoniker, or the Berliner Philharmonie). Daniel’s artistic personality has also been shaped by participation in flute music festivals: the Belgian Flute Festivals in Brussels and Antwerp, the British Flute Society Convention in Manchester or the Adams International Flute Festival in Ittevort (Holland).
He has frequently performed solo as well as with chamber ensembles at home and abroad, earning himself acclaim and winning prizes in international competitions. The Polish and Belgian culture ministers have awarded him scholarships and the Head of the Kujawsko-Pomorskie Province Council offered him an award for his outstanding contribution to the promotion of culture.
Daniel’s busy musical life is complemented by teaching with notable success a class of young talents at the Artur Rubinstein State Music School in Bydgoszcz.
