The programme of the recital, in which he was accompanied by Swiss pianist Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula, included Beethoven’s 7 Variations on 'Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen' from Mozart's Die Zauberflöte and Cello Sonata in C Op. 102 No. 1, Brahms’ Cello Sonata No. 1 in E minor Op.38, and Astor Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango.

Kułakowski, 27, studied at the Academy of Music in Gdańsk, northern Poland, and in Germany (Mannheim University, University of Music in Weimar, the Kronberg Academy). 

The winner of the 2015 Witold Lutoslawski International Cello Competition in Warsaw, Kułakowski has developed a fine career both as a soloist and chamber musician.

His discography includes a selection of works by French composers Debussy, Poulenc, Ravel and Satie, as well as Krzysztof Penderecki’s output for solo cello.
