Join famous Polish classical guitarist
in his first concert at UW Milwaukee (Classical Guitar Series)
From the WINTER 2018 issue of the CLASSICAL GUITAR: Lukasz Kuropaczewski is well on his way to becoming a major figure on the worldwide classical guitar scene. Born in 1981 in the small Polish town of Gniezno, Kuropaczewski (pronounced koo-ro-pa-shev-ski) began studying guitar at the age of ten.
At 13, his early talent brought him to the attention of the distinguished guitar teacher Piotr Zaleski, with whom he studied from 1994 to 2003. Upon receiving a master’s degree from the Academy of Music in Wroclaw, Poland, he travelled to the USA on a full scholarship to study with Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, where he was awarded an Artist Diploma in 2008. During this time, he performed concerts in his native Poland and around the world.
By now, Lukasz has performed in North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America, including such prestigious venues as London’s Royal Festival Hall, the Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and New York’s Carnegie Hall. He has premiered works by Angelo Gilardino and by Polish composers Krzysztof Meyer, Mikolaj Gorecki, Alexandre Tansman, and Krzysztof Penderecki, among others. As an avid performer of chamber music, he frequently works with musicians from around the world. .... /the interview continues/
