Alphabet - Andrzej Panufnik

Lutosławski, Witold

Panufnik’s friend from the Warsaw Conservatory. The two grew closer during the occupation years and their joint performances as a piano duo, which enabled the young composers to make a living. After the war, the friends went their separate ways and did not meet again until the 1980s. Each of them created his own musical language and each occupies a leading position in the history of Polish 20th-century music.
