Lukasz Kuropaczewski, “an amiable bear of a soloist” as the Washington Post portrayed him after one of his performances with the Baltimore Symphony, “is definitely the new megastar of the classical guitar.” (El Nuevo Dia, Puerto Rico) .
Lukasz is in great demand as a recitalist and as soloist with orchestras, and he is invited to perform in numerous venues around the globe each year. Highlights include appearances in London’s Royal Festival Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Warsaw’s National Philharmonic Hall, Tchaikovsky Hall in Moscow, Caramoor Music Festival, the Santa Fe Music Festival, and New York’s Carnegie Hall.
An avid chamber music collaborator, he frequently performs with the Orion String Quartet, mandolin player Avi Avital, Richard Galliano, Daniel Hope, members of Il Giardino Armonico, members of The Cleveland Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the San Antonio Symphony.
Lukasz has inspired many composers to write work for his instrument. He premiered a guitar quintet, “Acequias,” by Marc Neikrug at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, and his “Three Pieces for Guitar” at the Baltimore Museum of Art in Baltimore. He has premiered concertos by Angelo Gilardino, Krzysztof Meyer, Mikolaj Gorecki, and Alexandre Tansman, and he made the guitar version of Krzysztof Penderecki’s Viola Concerto and premiered it with Sinfonia Varsovia and conductor Maximiano Valdes.
Lukasz Kuropaczewski is currently on the faculty of the Kunst University Graz, Austria and Academy of Music in Poznan, Poland, holding a doctorate degree in performance. He is also the artist director of the Polish Guitar Academy Festival held in Poznan every year.
In May 2017, Lukasz Kuropaczewski was decorated with the “Meritorius for Polish Culture” medal in recognition of his distinguished cultural contribution, awarded by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage in Poland.
“Kuropaczewski performed with such passion and technical perfection that the audience could only fall in love with him.”
