PAWLIKOWSKI JAN ZAKLAD LUTNICZY
Jan Pawlikowski was born on January 2, 1943 at Maruszyna, a small village in the Podhale region. Music, which is the core of highlanders’ culture, was present in his life from the very beginning. Harmonica bought at a fair was the first instrument he played. The first violin, to be more precise its highland-style counterpart – “złóbcoki” (gusle), was presented to Jan by his paternal uncle, a musician and band leader.
Jan’s interest in and gift for music were noted by Maria Gondkiewicz, a primary school teacher. She persuaded the parents to assure further education and practice for her skilled pupil thus Jan entered the college and music school in Nowy Targ in a violin class of Marian Podkanowicz, the school director.
