The most important events of 2014


2014 brought many interesting events that will certainly become part of the PWM Edition history. Names of new composers were entered in the PWM catalogue, many pieces had their premières and the artists collaborating with our publishing house were honoured with awards and distinctions. Below we present a selection of the most important events of 2014.

New faces in PWM Edition

In 2014 PWM Edition started cooperation with several composers, such as: Jan Kanty Pawluśkiewicz who is a songwriter and a composer of theatre and film music (click here to see an interview with Jan Kanty Pawluśkiewicz), Rev. Wojciech Kałamarz - a composer specialising in choral and church music, Henryk Jan Botor - a composer and an organist and Marcin Łukasz Mazur - a composer and a conductor.

We are proud to announce that many artists cooperating with PWM Edition were honoured with awards and distinctions in 2014. Among those artists we can find: Agata Zubel - who was announced to be one of ten most fascinating and original artists in the world. She also received the Polish Composers’ Union award and Polonica Nova prize. "The New Yorker" has listed Agata Zubel's "Not I" album among the top ten recordings of 2014!. Second excellent artist is Paweł Łukaszewski who won the Choc de Classica award and Jerzy Kurczewski prize. Another distinguished artist who cooperates with PWM Edition is Zygmunt Krauze who was honoured with the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Polonia Restituta. Last but not least is Mieczysław Tomaszewski - a long-term director and editor-in-chief of PWM Edition who received the Coryphée of Polish Music award.

PWM Edition was a partner of Film Music Festival - a unique event in Europe in terms of sound and motion picture technology as well as the scale and level of artistic performance. On the last day of festival young musicians performed works by Maciej Zieliński and Wojciech Kilar.

We also had sad moments in 2014 connected with passing away of Włodzimierz Kotoński and Jan Ekier.

Most popular:

IL TEMPO PASSA. The first monographic album by Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa

Time passes constantly, changing the world and its soundscape around us. The title IL TEMPO PASSA may be both a reflection on the impermanence of life, world and things and a piece of advice to enjoy the moment. The latest album by ANAKLASIS presents Joanna Wnuk-Nazarowa’s cameral and symphonic works from recent years. Premiere on 28 May 2024, on the composer’s 75th birthday.

THE TALE OF THE HEART. FAVOLA IN MUSICA: a joint project by Aleksander Nowak and Radek Rak from ANAKLASIS on sale as of 6th October

It is a musical-literary tale about a quest for identity, truth, and for what makes us human. The new stage work by Aleksander Nowak – which is, at the same time, Radek Rak’s operatic debut – explores the sources of good and evil, fusing reality with mythology and steering towards ‘the left-hand side of the world’. The authors spin a tale about the dual human nature. THE TALE OF THE HEART. FAVOLA IN MUSICA – the album that presents their joint project – will go on sale on 6th October.


Różycki’s Adventures in Jazzland. The album INSPIRED BY LUDOMIR RÓŻYCKI from ANAKLASIS on sale as of 28th August

Spectacularly successful as Ludomir Różycki’s music was in his lifetime, it is seldom programmed nowadays. All the same, such remarkable art could hardly fall into utter oblivion. It has attracted and fascinated excellent jazz pianist Kuba Stankiewicz, who has translated it into the language of jazz. The effects have been recorded and released on ANAKLASIS label’s most recent album, INSPIRED BY LUDOMIR RÓŻYCKI, which goes on sale as of 28th August.

PWM przenosi się na Wiejską

PWM Edition is entering the execution phase of the revitalisation of its Warsaw department. With the commencement of the renovation and the implementation of the assumptions of the architectural design, the Hire Department and the editorial office of “Ruch Muzyczny” are moving to a temporary headquarters at 19 Wiejska Street, Warsaw.


This is by no means a piece about the centuries-long Polish-German conflict. It is, instead, a tale of impossible love, of tragic conflict between personal happiness and the common good.

PWM Edition is the exclusive representative of the Ricordi publishing house in Poland

PWM Edition resumes cooperation with the Italian publishing house Ricordi, as well as with its international partners forming Universal Music Publishing Classics & Screen. This means that rentals of orchestral materials from the catalogues of all publishing houses belonging to Classics & Screen is carried out in Poland by Dział Zbiorów Nutowych (Sheet Music Department) of PWM.


The most fascinating phenomena in contemporary music; a wide range of genres; outstanding works, excellent composers and performers – are the trademarks of the record label ANAKLASIS, launched by PWM Edition. ANAKLASIS is now celebrating its third birthday. It continues to grow at a dizzying pace and maintains the high artistic standards of its releases.


When asked to attempt a definition of her music, she called it lyrical expressionism. The choice of this term says much about the emotional intensity of Elżbieta Sikora’s music, which may reflect the experience of her two home countries, Poland and France, but is also a consequence of her artistic maturation in an age when two powerful trends – the avant-garde and neo-Classicism – were vying for the palm. Such a label may also result from the artist’s focus on the listener as her target, whom she invariably attempts to surprise, shock, or bewilder.

Polish chamber music of the 19th and 20th centuries in Estonia!

In cooperation with the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater and the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Tallinn, we invite you to two concerts and lectures presenting the diversity and beauty of Polish music.
