The Kupinski Guitar Duo is the peerless example of 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 /Poland/ 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 honoured multiple times with prestigious awards and scholarships for artistic achievements. They have played recitals in Europe (e.g. Poland, England, Germany, France, Switzerland), USA (e.g. Washington, Houston, San Jose, Oklahoma City, Louisville, Los Angeles, Miami), Mexico, China, Taiwan and Japan.
As a part of their passion for education, they have been invited to give Master Classes in Europe, Asia and USA. Ewa holds the Habilitation degree in guitar performance and is tenured professor at the Jan Długosz University in Częstochowa and at the Krzysztof Penderecki Academy of Music in Krakow. Dariusz holds the Doctor degree in guitar performance and teaches at the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice. In 2018/2019 duo had been residing in United States for an 18-month research and recording project addressing the Grawemeyer Award in music composition at the University of Louisville, funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Poland.
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 another CD „RECITAL” (2016) features mostly arrangements of music of Chopin, Rossini, Piazzolla and Gershwin. The intention of the latest CD ‘Kupinski Guitar Duo Goes Modern’ /2022/ was to record new, unknown, original pieces for guitar duo.
With a growing reputation for performing with tremendous energy and artistry, their aim is to create a rich and varied concert experience for audience through great performances of great music.
