Lukasz Lisowski

Place of birth: Kielce, Poland

What year did you begin to play your instrument, and why that specific instrument? Viola is my voice since 1992.

When did you begin to work in MSO? 2008

What does your educational background look like? Stanisław Moniuszko Academy of Music in Gdańsk, masterclasses at Dreilinden Konservatorium Luzern, Irena Albrecht as well as Stefan Kamasa, Henry Meyer, Sebastian Hamann, Hartmut Rohde, Miró String Quartet, Jospeh Kalichstein, Robert Kabara, Jan Stanienda, Pavel Vernikov, Reiner Honeck, Björn Arnholdt-Olsson, Hyewon Lim and many other fantastical educators and artists i've met along my musical life's path. Musikhögskolan Malmö, Rolf Martinsson, Björn Tryggve Johansson, Kent Oloffson, Tobias Broström and Luca Francesconi gave me an opportunity to develop an invaluable insight into the viscera of music composing. 

Being a member of the MSO viola section helped me to understand how important is to trust yourself and each other in symphonic music-making.

What is you favorite moment from your time in the MSO? The people. Always. By „The people" i mean all the people that I’ve met at MSO, in general. The musicians, the public, other department’s colleagues. 

In what other orchestras/ensembles or other contexts have you worked? It may sound like bragging, but there's no field within music-making I haven't been active or at least trying my best. Solo playing, chamber music, string and symphony orchestras, recordings montage, ensemble and concert arrangement, tour management, composing, conducting, playing on the street… Then in Poland, now in Sweden, in most of European countries, sometimes beyond. Performing at Berliner Philharmoniker Concert Hall, Tonhalle Zürich, Mariinsky Theatre  in St. Petersburg, KKL Luzern, The Royal Concertgebouw and Malmö Live Concert Hall as well as small, austere churches in Skåne is the most precious stage experience i’ve gained.

Who is you favorite composer? One should not favor one family member over another.

What do you prefer to do in your spare time? Thinking, which I definitely do too much, as well as watching online lectures. 

What is you tip on activity in Malmö? Meeting people and their life experience from all over the world.

What is your favourite food? Chicken, tea, cafe latte, tons of apples and tomatoes.

Why should everyone go and listen to symphonic music? I am not anymore an idealist in a sense that all people will find a value in what we are doing, the pandemics revealed it on many levels. Nevertheless, still many will find here a portal to experience human transcendence to something beyond time, language and entropy of the universe.
