Franciszek Idzik was born in 2011 Kielce, Poland.
From an early age he showed an interest in classical music, in particular playing the violin. Franciszek chose the musician’s path on his own, thus completely surprising his not very musical family. His father, a great sports lover, saw Franek as a future football star. The passion for music, however, was stronger.
He began violin studies at the age of 6. It didn’t take long for Franek to achieve his first little successes. After only 4 months of education, Franciszek won the 2nd place in the Provincial Competition for String Instruments organized by the Music School in Kielce, where he competed with students much older than himself. Half a year later, together with four of his bandmates, he was invited to Baku in Azerbaijan where he represented Poland during the World Scout Conference performing two violin concerts. A year later, at the age of 7, he was granted a distinction and a special prize for the youngest violinist in the “Vivaldi 340” International Violin Competition in Wieliczka, Poland. Since then he has successfully been taking part in music competitions and concerts. Other important moments in his life include
April 2019 the first prize in the VIII National Violin Competition “Young Violinist” organized by the W. Kilar 1st Grade Music School in Olkusz, Poland
