Łukasz Borowicz (conductor)

One of the most versatile conductors of his generation, Łukasz Borowicz regularly leads major European orchestras in the core Germanic repertoire as well as important works by Russian, Polish, Czech and Hungarian composers. He conducts opera, and has received numerous prizes for his recordings, which now exceed 100 in number. From 2007 to 2015, he was Chief Conductor of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra in Warsaw, and since 2006 he has held the position of Chief Guest Conductor of the Poznan Philharmonic.

Borowicz has appeared as guest conductor and recorded with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Konzerthausorchester Berlin, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Bamberger Symphoniker, SWR Symphonieorchester, Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, MDR-Sinfonieorchester, Opéra Bastille, Orchestre national de Lille, Opéra national de Lorraine, Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, Luzerner Sinfonieorchester, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Queensland Symphony Orchestra and Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group, among a number of other orchestras, including all the major Polish symphony orchestras.

A prolific recording artist, Borowicz’s recordings have been awarded four Diapason d’Or prizes. Symphonic recordings include the complete violin concertos of Grażyna Bacewicz (Chandos), the complete symphonic works of Andrzej Panufnik (CPO), and several titles for Hyperion. The final instalment of the Panufnik cycle was selected as Editor’s Choice in Gramophone magazine, and Borowicz received the ICMA Special Achievement Award in 2015 for his pioneering work on the project. In 2018 he received another ICMA award for his recording of Quo vadis by Feliks Nowowiejski. Borowicz’s collaboration with Piotr Beczała on the album Heart’s Delight: The Songs of Richard Tauber was met with wide critical and public acclaim.

Born in Warsaw in 1977, Łukasz Borowicz graduated from the Fryderyk Chopin Music Academy, where he studied under Bogusław Madey, later receiving a doctorate in conducting under Antoni Wit. He has received the Polityka Passport Award (2008), Coryphée of Polish Music Award (2011), Norwid Award (2013) and Tansman Prize honouring an outstanding musical personality (2014).
