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.
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.
