LUKA ŠULIĆ WINS THE FIRST PRIZE IN WARSZAW
at the Witold Lutoslawski International Cello Competition

Special prize for the best performance of Lutoslawski's Sacher Variations also goes to Luka

Croatian cellist Luka Šulić (1987) is the First Prize winner of the Witold Lutoslawski International Cello Competition held last week in Warsaw, Poland. This very prestigious biannual competition, whose Honorary Chairman  of the Jury during his lifetime was legendary Mstislav Rostropovich, attracted some forty cellists from all over the world. Luka shared the first prize with Philip Higham of the UK

Among the semifinalists was another Croatian, Kajana Pačko, making the Croatian presence even more noteworthy. Four finalists, chosen by the eminent international jury, performed with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by maestro Krzysztof Urbański.

Luka's brilliant interpretation of Schumann Cello Concerto impressed both the jury and the audience and brought him First Prize. In addition to that, Luka was awarded the Special Prize for the best performance of Lutoslawski's Sacher Variations. 

This huge success came after a steady stream of top prizes that Luka won over the years participating in important international competitions. He has also presented many recitals all over Europe and Japan, and appeared as a soloist with renowned orchestras such as Zagreb Philharmonic, Slovenian Philharmonic, Slovak Philharmonic, Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra and Russian Symphony Orchestra. Twice he represented Croatia at the Vladimir Spivakov Foundation Concerts in Moscow featuring the best young talents from all over the world.

His debut at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival in 2005 was yet another great success.  Luka presently studies with Reinhard Latzko at the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts, after having graduated from the Zagreb Academy of Music, where he studied with Valter Dešpalj.

Jedan od najvećih uspjeha hrvatskog violončelizma
 
LUKI ŠULIĆU I. NAGRADA U VARŠAVI

Dobitnik je i specijalne nagrade za najbolju izvedbu ''Sacher varijacija'' W. Lutoslawskog

VARŠAVA - Hrvatski violončelist Luka Šulić (1987.) dobitnik je prve nagrade međunarodnog violončelističkog natjecanja ''Witold Lutoslawski'', upravo održanog u Varšavi. Ovo nadasve prestižno bijenalno natjecanje kojem je sve do smrti počasnim predsjednikom bio legendarni Mstislav Rostropovič privuklo je četrdesetak violončelista iz čitavog svijeta.

Među polufinalistima bila je i naša Kajana Pačko čime je prisustvo hrvatskih violončelista bilo dodatno zapaženo. Četvoro finalista nastupilo je uz orkestar Varšavske filharmonije pod ravnanjem maestra Krzysztofa Urbańskog.

Briljantnom izvedbom zahtjevnog Schumannovog koncerta Luka Šulić je oduševio ugledne violončeliste u žiriju kao i publiku te je podijelio prvo mjesto s britanskim kolegom Philipom Highamom.  Za najbolju izvedbu ''Sacher varijacija'' W. Lutoslawskog dobitnik je i specijalne nagrade. 

Luki Šuliću, koji već godinama niže uspjehe na natjecanjima ovo je do sada najveći. Mladi violončelist već ima iza sebe značajne solističke nastupe s orkestrima kao što su Zagrebačka filharmonija, Ljubljanska i Slovačka filharmonija, Simfonijski orkestar Slovačke radiotelevizije te Ruski simfonijski orkestar. Dvaput je predstavljao Hrvatsku na koncertima Fonda Vladimira Spivakova u Moskvi koji prezentiraju mlade talente i laureate iz cijelog svijeta.

Godine 2005. s velikim je uspjehom debitirao na Dubrovačkim ljetnim igrama. Kao izuzetno nadareni mladi violončelist, primljen je već s 15 godina u klasu prof. Valtera Dešpalja na Muzičkoj akademiji u Zagrebu, a poslije diplome 2006. godine nastavlja studij u Beču kod profesora Reinharda Latzka.
