Piotr Kusiewicz (b1953)

The Polish tenor Piotr Kusiewicz studied piano with professor Zbigniew Śliwiński and singing with professor Jerzy Szymański at the Gdansk Academy of Music. In 1978 he received the first prize and two distinctions in the 13th International Antonin Dvořák Vocal Competition in Karlove Vary.

Piotr Kusiewicz is a much sought after artist especially for his interpretations of contemporary music. He performs works by Krzysztof Penderecki, Witold Lutosławski, Krzysztof Baculewski, Edward Pałłasz, Juliusz Łuciuk, Paweł Łukaszewski and Zbigniew Preisner. Composers often trust him to première their works. He was one of the soloists in Karol Szymanowski’s “King Roger” which he performed with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra under Charles Dutoit in Paris, Montreal, New York (Carnegie Hall) and Tokyo. He is the first Polish singer, who performed and recorded “Paroles tissees” by Witold Lutosławski [Naxos 8.553423] with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Antoni Wit.

Piotr Kusiewicz has collaborated with such prominent conductors as Leonard Bernstein, Charles Dutoit, Daniele Gatti, Adrian Leaper, Kazimierz Kord, Jerzy Katlewicz, Antoni Wit, Tomasz Bugaj, Jacek Kaspszyk, Stefan Stuligrosz, Krzysztof Penderecki. His repertory includes over 90 oratorio works, operas by Handel and Monteverdi, as well as song cycles.
