Without passion, one cannot pass on real knowledge. It's this unquenchable passion of his, that rubs off to students and makes them understand and feel music.
Lukas Kasperek is an internationally sought-after expert on Chopin's interpretation and musicological and practical expertise of Chopin's œuvre.
Whether these are concerts, exhibitions or other artistic events, Lukas constantly widens his own horizons. That's how he stays up to date, categorizes current artistic events and brings those into his musical analysis.
Lukas needs the arts like one needs air to breathe. In his deep research of Chopin, Koczalski and generally music of the turn of the 20th century, he discovered numerous similarities in the way of thinking of the Art Nouveau period, which can be seen in an interdisciplinary manner within all artistic movements and beyond. It’s all about vital connections between music and other arts and crafts, such as literature, fine arts, architecture, psychology and so on. Especially in view of an authentic interpretation of a musical work at the turn of the century, this knowledge is an important contribution for the present time. It’s this vast knowledge and passion that gives Lukas a unique view on music and its true meaning for today’s interpreters. It’s all about putting oneself emotionally and mentally in a time that is closer to a more authentic interpretation of the compositions.
