The Kupiński 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 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, such as the "Young Poland" Scholarship, the Polish Minister of Culture and National Heritage Scholarship and DAAD. They have played recitals in Europe (Poland, England, Germany, France, Switzerland), USA (Washington, Houston, San Jose, Oklahoma City, Louisville, Los Angeles, Miami), Mexico, China 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 currently teaching at the Institute of Music of Jan Długosz University in Częstochowa. Dariusz holds the Doctor degree in guitar performance. The Kupinski Duo resided in the 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.
