MICHAŁ JAKUB PAPARA – composer and music theorist, a member of the Youth World of the Polish Composers' Union. He was born in 1984 in Kraków, where he graduated from the S. Wiechowicz State Music Primary School and the W. Żeleński Secondary School (in violin). In 2006 he received a Bachelor's degree in musicology at the Jagiellonian University, and in 2010 graduated with honours in Music Theory from the Academy of Music in Kraków. He is currently a diploma year student in composition in prof. Józef Rychlik’s class.
His first major success was in the autumn of 2009 when he received the first prize in the VII T. Ochlewski Composition Competition with the piece "Odyseja – String Quartet No.1" which was premiered by the Silesian Quartet and released in print by PWM Edition. In December the same year the composer received the highest distinction (first prize not awarded) in the second M. Stachowski Composition Competition for the piece "Klątwa starych zegarów" for piano trio. In 2010 he received the second prize (ex aequo) in the LI T. Baird Composition Competition for the composition "Moje strachy" for two pianos and two percussionists and second prize (ex aequo) in the XVIII A. Didur National Open Composition Competition for the piece "A może to świat płonie?" for female voice and piano to words by Agnieszka Herman. A year later, in September 2011 he was again a winner in the A. Didur National Open Composition Competition, this time receiving first distinction for "Okręty zimowe" for female voice and string quartet to words by Krzysztof Kamil Baczyński.
In November 2010, during the VI Festival of Polish Music, his piece "Poemat z księgi snów i wyobrażeń" for chamber ensemble, which was commissioned by the Festival Directorate, was premiered by members of The London Sinfonietta.
The composer mostly creates chamber, instrumental and vocal-instrumental and electronic music. For several years he has been working with students of animated film at the Graphics Department at the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków (prof. Jerzy Kucia’s studio), to create music for animation and animated films. He is also the author of arrangements and adaptations of works by other composers. In March 2012, Polskie Wydawnictwo Muzyczne published his piano transcriptions of popular songs and themes from film music by Wojciech Kilar.
Michał Jakub Papara was awarded the Minister of Culture and National Heritage Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement and artistic successes, the scientific scholarship of the Royal City of Kraków for gifted students and doctoral students of universities in Kraków, and also holds a scholarship from the Sapere Auso Foundation.
