Andrzej Nikodemowicz was born 2 I 1925 in Lviv, polish composer, pianist and pedagogue. Died 28 I 2017 in Lublin (Poland). In the years 1939–40 he was organist in the church of the Discalced Carmelite Nuns, in the years 1947–50 in the church of St Mary Magdalene in Lviv. In the years 1942–46 he studied chemistry at the Lviv Polytechnic among other places. In 1950 he finished composition under A. Sołtys, and in 1954 piano under T.

He collaborated permanently as a composer and pianist with the Polish Peoples’ Theatre in Lviv and with the director Z. Chrzanowski. He was persecuted in 1973 and removed from the university for religious beliefs, and until 1980 he supported himself with private lessons; in the mid-70s all of his recordings in the radio in Lviv were deleted. In 1980 he moved to Lublin, lectured at the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University and the Catholic University of Lublin, in the years 1980 - 1984 worked as a teacher at Karol Lipiński National Music School in Lublin. In 1995 he was awarded the title of professor, and from 1989, was president of the Lublin Branch of the PCU, also honorary president of the “Muzyka Kresów” Foundation (Music of the Borderlands Foundation).

In 1961 he was awarded third prize at the All-Union Composers' Competition in Moscow, in 1981 the St. Albert's Award for lifetime achievement, in 1999 the President of the city of Lublin’s award, in 2000 the PCU award and the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage award. As a pianist, he performed his own compositions and classical repertoire, but illness in his hands prevented a career. He was also occupied with sacred horticulture.
