Kupiński Guitar Duo, guitar duo
The Kupiński Guitar Duo is the peerless example of the artistic talent in the world of classical music and one of Europe’s most renowned guitar duos. Acclaimed by both the public and critics alike as two musicians with a brilliant technique, passion, quality of sound and infinite elegance. In addition to the numerous solo achievements, after graduating the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice and Hochschule für Musik in Weimar (guitar class of prof. Thomas Müller-Pering), Ewa and Dariusz decided to establish the guitar duo, bringing to their performances a masterful sense of ensemble and charming personal chemistry. They have been honored multiple times with prestigious awards and scholarships for artistic achievements, such as “Young Poland” Scholarship, the Polish Minister of Culture and National Heritage Scholarship and DAAD. They have played recitals in Europe (e.g. Poland, England, Germany, France, Slovakia), USA (e.g. Washington, Houston, San Jose, Oklahoma City, Louisville), Mexico, Japan, and China. As a part of their passion for education, they have been invited to give Master Classes in Europe, Asia, and the USA. Ewa holds the Habilitation degree in guitar performance and is currently teaching at the Institute of Music of Jan Długosz University in Częstochowa. Dariusz holds the Doctor degree in guitar performance. In 2011 their debut CD „SPANISH MUSIC” has been released. From that time this husband and wife duo has been gaining momentum and attracting fans throughout the World. Their second CD “RECITAL” (2016) features mostly arrangements of the music of Chopin, Rossini, Piazzolla, and Gershwin. With a growing reputation for performing with tremendous energy and artistry, their aim is to create a rich and varied concert experience for the audience through great performances of great music.
