Witold Lutosławski (1913 – 1994) is one of the most famous composers of the 20th century. He is the author of four symphonies and many chamber instrumental and vocal works. He was born in Warsaw in 1913 and showed his great musical talent since childhood. Lutosławski’s music had several stylistic transformations, from neoclassicism and folklore inspirations during his early period to a distinctly individual language in his later years. Lutosławski was very popular. He was often invited to the jury of various composer competitions. He also taught and conducted musical courses. He cared about people’s problems and engaged in charity. He actively supported the “Solidarity” civil movement. Lutosławski’s works deeply influenced the development of modern music.
The project received the rest of financing from the funds of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage of Poland as part of the “Lutosławski-2013-Promesa” program implemented by the Institute of Music and Dance.
