Kevin Swierkosz-Lenart was born in Velletri (Italy) in 1988. His musical alma mater is Conservatorio “S. Cecilia”. Here, Kevin obtained his diploma Classic Guitar in 2012. Alongside his musical education, Kevin obtained in 2013 a degree in Medicine from “Universita’ Cattolica del Sacro Cuore”. At the moment, he is serving as added head physician by the psychogeriatrics department of the University Hospital in Lausanne (Switzerland).

His scientific and musical activity has always been accompanied by a strong interest in literature, which led him to publish in 2017 his first novel, “Adamo”, available on Amazon.

From 2016, Kevin has been studying composition supervised by Angelo Gilardino and Dusan Bogdanovic. In 2019, one of his first productions, entitled “Variationi su El Testament d’Amelia”, have been issued by Berbèn publisher house with the revision of Cristiano Porqueddu and fingering by Francesco Dominici Buraccini. His music has been played by Alberto Mesirca, Cristiano Porqueddu, Angelo Colone, Francesco Dominici Buraccini, Giovanni Martinelli and Lorenzo Micheli Pucci. Again in 2019, three of his compositions have been premiered in Italy by Angelo Colone (Jeux d’enfants), Francesco Dominici Buraccini (Variazioni su El Testament d’Amelia) and Giovanni Martinelli (Sei invenzioni sicule).

On youtube, it is possible to find many executions of Kevin’s compositions. Moreover, “Variazioni su El Testament d’Amelia” will be recorded by Cristano Porqueddu and will be part of the “Novecento Guitar Variations” collection, which is going to be published by Brilliant Classics in the near future.

ANGELO GILARDINO

“Among the young people who, having completed their guitar studies in the conservatory, continued their musical training towards composition, Kevin Swierkosz-Lenart is certainly one of the most gifted and most studious.
His works for and with guitar denote a cultured hand and, at the same time, a fresh and uninhibited musical imagination, which knows how to avoid both idiomatic banalities and academisms of the first in the class. He is building his own stylistic identity and firmly belongs to the category of composers who believe in the need to recover a line of direct communication with listeners, dismantling the inveterate distrust of contemporary music”.

DUSAN BOGDANOVIC

“Though he has been long time connected to the guitar world, Kevin Swierkosz-Lenart is, so to say, a new-born composer. Kevin’s compositions are genuine and deep explorations of his humanity; they are creative works that are conceived with great inspiration and intelligence.”

CRISTIANO PORQUEDDU

“Lenart composes with mastery of the compositional technique and complete knowledge of the peculiarities of the guitar: a combination that no interpreter should let slip away”.

FRANCESCO DOMINICI BURACCINI

“Kevin’s music is timeless, perfectly balanced between past and future”.

ANGELO COLONE

“Jeux d’enfants […] is an expression of a remarkable compositional maturity, a truly valuable work for a debuting composer”.

GIOVANNI MARTINELLI

“Kevin’s music stands out peremptorily from every trend, making the compositional process a ‘itinerarium mentis’ from which the yearning for a light and poignant sound at the same time transpires, sought with extreme constancy and with the inalienable conviction that beauty, although always partially revealed, is a real reason for living”.

LORENZO MICHELI PUCCI

“The music of Kevin Swierkosz-Lenart is partly a synthesis filtered by two contemporary guitar giants like Gilardino and Bogdanovic. The detachment from his references is well expressed by a sentence dictated by himself: I write for an existing guitar, wich has still to be imagined”.

EDOARDO TRITTO

“Kevin’s music, in its multifaceted forms, paints infinite worlds; it gives the guitar a new voice, which becomes an expression of pure beauty, restlessness and nostalgia”
