Stanislas Niedzielski (1905–1975) was a Polish pianist, noted for his playing of Chopin. His given name is also seen as Stanislaw or Stanislaus.
He was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1905 and studied with Józef Śliwiński and Henryk Opieński in Poland, and with Ignacy Jan Paderewski in Switzerland. He gave his first concert in London in 1925. He played Cyril Scott's Piano Concerto No. 1 in March 1928, with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under Sir Dan Godfrey (the source refers to him as a "teenager", but he appears to have been about 23).
For a performance at Birmingham Town Hall around 1950 he brought his own piano in a box trailer towed behind his car.
