Extract

(b Lwów, May 4, 1944). Polish composer. By the age of 13 she had composed her first concerto, for two pianos, which was performed at the Kraków Conservatory. She studied at the music high school in Kraków (1958–62), then spent a year at the Conservatory there; she continued her studies in Katowice (1963–7), where she gained a Master’s degree in theory, composition and conducting. During the next seven years she received grants from the Ministry for Art and Culture and commissions, and taught at the high school in Gliwice. However she found herself increasingly ostracized on account of her compositional style, which was still in the Romantic, tonal tradition of Chopin, and she left the composers’ union in 1970. In 1974 she moved to Berlin to work as a music teacher and church musician.
