Compositions
Andrzej Panufnik

(1914 - 1991)
Andrzej Panufnik was one of the most important Polish composers of the 20th century. He studied theory and composition at the Warsaw State Conservatory and conducting with Felix Weingartner in Vienna. During the Nazi wartime occupation he performed in a piano duo with Witold Lutoslawsk. Panufnik laid the ground for future Polish avant-garde music with quartertone Lullaby (1947). In 1954 he settled in England and 'ceased to exist' in his homeland. Panufnik composed for leading performers in the West, including Sinfonia Elegiaca (Stokowski), Violin Concerto (Menuhin), Sinfonia Votiva (Ozawa) and Symphony No.10 (Solti). In 1990 Panufnik made a momentous return visit to Poland. His worklist is dominated by classical genres, including ten symphonies, three string quartets, and concerti for piano, violin, bassoon and cello. His music displays craftsmanship, classical beauty and direct human expression.
