Andrzej Krzanowski

Andrzej Krzanowski


A pupil of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki (composition) and Joachim Pichura (accordion). A composer, teacher, performer of contemporary accordion music.

In 1984 and 1986 he lectured at the summer courses in Darmstadt, in 1987 at the "Time of Music" in Viitasaari (Finland).


Andrzej Krzanowski is an author of small and big chamber music forms scored for unconventional instruments, often in combination with a human voice or tape music, most often with the participation of the accordeon. He was inspired by contemporary literature and he liked to use a quotation (Bach, Szymanowski, Górecki). He was capable of creating an unusual climate with a considerable amount of expression ranging from spontaneous (Concerto for Orchestra) to lyrical and contemplative (Second Symphony, Third String Quartet). Using the accordion as his starting point, due to his extraordinary artistic imagination, he became a real discoverer of new - not only for this instrument - areas of music of our age.
