PWM Edition as Partner of the 12th Krakow Film Music Festival


Three, two, one… ACTION! The 12th Krakow Film Music Festival (FMF) is already at full steam. We are looking forward to the extraordinary emotions and thrills that accompany the performances of world-class music stars, known not only in the world of film music. PWM Edition also takes active part in the event as the 2019 partner of this great film music feast.


On Thursday 16th April at 7 pm, in the concert entitled Scoring4Polish Directors, we will hear, among others, cult works by Wojciech Kilar from Zanussi’s movies Hypothesis, Foreign Body and The Illumination.

On Friday 17h April we invite the audience to a discussion panel entitled Working with Kilar – Friendship, Cooperation and Restoration of His Works After Years. PWM Edition will be represented at the panel by Ms Janina Warzecha. Participants will share their behind-the-scenes experiences and memories related to working with Wojciech Kilar. We can’t wait to hear their tales!

On Saturday 18th April we focus on our youngest audience. At 10 am we meet at the ICE Cracow Congress Centre for a special edition of “Good Morning ICE Krakow” entitled “Good Morning FMF”, during which our young audience will play music games with Katarzyna Huzar-Czub, author of the book series Sonia in the Land of Sonoroos and MC / cultural animator Darek Janiczak. We will travel to the Land of Sonoroos and – with the help of a mad orchestra conductor – we will record our own music piece using a special sound recorder!

On Sunday 19th April, during the FMF Gala: The Glamorous Show, the composer Craig Armstrong will be presented with this year’s Wojciech Kilar Award, granted by a board of experts who included PWM Edition’s Director and Editor-in-Chief, Daniel Cichy (PhD). The eminent film music composer Craig Armstrong is the author of soundtracks for such films as Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby, Romeo and Juliet, and Far From The Madding Crowd. Our sincere congratulations!

PWM Edition’s publications will be available throughout the duration of this year’s Cracow Film Music Festival from the Festival Bookshop “Music Corner”. Festival guests will find there both our books for children: Little Overtures and Sonia in the Land of Sonoroos – and those for the rather older audience: the awarded detective novel Sidła [Snares] by Grażyna Bacewicz, Teresa Chylińska’s Romans, którego nie było [A Romance That Never Took Place] about Karol Szymanowski’s youth, the conductor Kazimierz Kord’s autobiography Epizody [Episodes], and Danuta Gwizdalanka’s 100 lat z dziejów polskiej muzyki [A Hundred Years of Polish Music].

We cordially invite you to the Festival on behalf of the organisers and PWM Edition!

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!
