Waiariki Institute of Technology hosting world renowned cellist

Multi-award winning Slovak cellist Jozef Lupták will perform at Waiariki Institute of Technology this Sunday afternoon from 3pm.

Mr Lupták, who is touring New Zealand, has a style all his own. While presenting a musical collage on his cello featuring works by Bachelor, Block, Tavener and other famous composers, he also interweaves his voice, beatboxing and other rhythmic devices to create a performance that appeals to a wide audience.

Waiariki’s Tangatarua Marae will provide an intimate atmosphere perfect for showcasing the acoustic ambiance Mr Lupták creates.

Two guest appearances will be made as well as a special collaboration with Waiariki students of the Diploma in Contemporary Music Performance.

Mr Lupták is one of the most prominent musicians in Eastern European music and arts. He is a classical and folk musician, working with Roma-Gypsy music, Chassidic music and some of Eastern Europe’s most prominent pop musicians.

Accolades include winning the Cello Competition of Slovak Conservatories in 1986, being awarded the Jury Prize at the Murcia Cello Competition in Spain, the BANFF Centre Long Term Residency Scholarship, the May Mukle Cello Prize at the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Frico Kafenda Award.

In 2010 he was awarded a special prize by the Slovak Minister of Culture for his success as a both a cellist and artistic director and founder of acclaimed international chamber music festival, Konvergencie/Convergence. In 2003 Mr Lupták was also appointed as an artistic director for the seventh International Festival of Contemporary Music Melos-Ethos in Bratislava.
