Barbara Lysakowski

Barbara Lysakowski, piano

Born in Poland, Barbara Lysakowski is an active solo and chamber music pianist in her native country and in the Boston area. Her musical interests stretch from Classical to 20th century music. Her repertoire includes, among others, Chopin's, Grieg's, and Debussy's Sonatas for Cello and Piano, Poulenc's Sonata for Flute and Piano and Beethoven's Appassionata Sonata. She is a current member of the RÍve d'Amour ensemble, whose debut on November 2014 at the French Cultural Center was described in the Boston Musical Intelligencer as "strong" and "provided a kind of magic" with "impressive, lyrical talents".  In Poland, under the City Concert Series, Barbara has performed with cellist, Anna Sawicka, a concert master of the Baltic State Opera Orchestra.

Barbara started her collegiate studies at the Academy of Music in Gdansk.  Under the supervision of the renowned pianist and chancellor, Waldemar Wojtal, she obtained the Master of Arts in Piano Performance with Academic Honors.  She was an instructor of chamber music at that institution for 3 years.  

After moving to the US, she enrolled at the New England Conservatory graduate program where she studied with Randall Hodgkinson and earned a Master of Music in Piano Performance with Academic Honors.  Since then she taught at the South Shore Conservatory and Franklin School for the Performing Arts. Currently, she is a member of the piano faculty and a staff accompanist at All Newton Music School.

We welcome Barbara Lysakowski to her first appearance on the Historical Piano Concerts series.
