One of the most recognisable harpsichordists of the young generation, winner of the “Polityka” weekly’s Passport Award for 2015. He performs on different types of historical keyboard instruments. He regularly collaborates with such leading international and Polish ensembles as Brecon Baroque, Arte dei Suonatori, and {oh!} Historical Orchestra. With these groups he has recorded for such labels as BIS, Channel Classics, Accent, Alpha, Decca, Linn Records, and DUX, as well as for radio and television broadcasters throughout Europe. 2015 saw the release of his album featuring harpsichord concertos by the late Baroque composer Johann Gottfried Müthel (awarded a Diapason d'Or), and in 2017 – the multi-award-winning CD Cromatica. His recording of Biber’s Rosenkranzsonaten (with Rachel Podger and David Miller) won the Gramophone Award.
Playing on a fine, sonorous copy of a 17th-century Ruckers harpsichord, Marcin Świątkiewicz relishes both the flamboyant virtuosity of the fast movements and the delicate sentiment of the Adagios – not so delicate, either, in the florid, Baroque-inspired rhetoric of No 4. He makes colourful use of the instrument’s contrasting manuals and has a subtle sense of rubato, aware that time borrowed should also be repaid.

Marcin Swiatkiewicz possède au plus haut degré le sens du chant (admirable Adagio du Concerto en do mineur) et un abattage impressionnant, signe distinctif d'une nouvelle génération de claviéristes doublés de formidables improvisateurs. Cette vision ambitieuse a tout pour faire sortir de l'ombre un compositeur dont seules quelques pages pour clavier avaient été bien défendues au disque.

W wirtuozowskich koncertach Müthela Świątkiewicz odnalazł całą paletę emocji, sprostał także wymagającym swobody technicznej oraz niebanalnej fantazji fragmentom ad libitum, w których dokonał niełatwej transpozycji retoryki operowej na język instrumentu.

Rachel Podger and her accompanists enjoy bringing out these pieces’ sense of discovery, of excitement and intense feeling, yet without doing violence to the substance of the music. [...] Podger’s pure tone and expressive bowing are well complemented by Marcin Świątkiewicz's bright, pungent copy of an Italian harpsichord from the early 1600s [...] The organ provides another welcome contrast of colour, not least in the fine solo Gabrieli ricercar […].

Bei ihrer Darstellung wurden keine Strukturen verwischt und es entstand besonders in der Interpretation des Cembalokonzertes durch Marcin Swiatkiewicz ein detailreiches Bild der Partitur. Durch gezielt platzierte Rubati verlieh Swiatkiewicz seiner Darbietung frische Lebendigkeit und Unbeschwertheit. Keinerlei Unsicherheiten gab es im das Werk beschließenden Allegro, wo er seinen Vortrag etwas beschleunigte, und das Ripieno sofort mitzog.

Płyta jest niemal w całości dziełem autorskim Marcina Świątkiewicza. Została przygotowana z dużą starannością od strony muzycznej i opatrzona ciekawym tekstem. W atrakcyjny sposób ukazuje złożony świat niemieckiej muzyki klawesynowej czasów baroku, a ciekawie, momentami brawurowo interpretowanej przez Marcina Świątkiewicza. Brzmienie klawesynu, z wyczuciem różnicowane przez zmiany rejestrów, zostało w nagraniu dobrze uchwycone.

Album "Cromatica - The Art Of Moving Souls" Marcina Świątkiewicza to nie tylko przewodnik po muzyce chromatycznej komponowanej na klawesyn, ale po prostu świetna płyta wybitnego muzyka. Poruszające wykonania.

Program jest kunsztownie skonstruowany, a solista jest muzycznym erudytą o gruntownej znajomości epoki i kontekstów.
