Aleksander Zarzycki (1834 - 1895)

Aleksander Zarzycki was born in 1834 in Lwów. While studying piano with Rudolf Viole in Berlin he also pursued a career on the concert stage. He later studied composition in Paris and gave the premières of his Grand Polonaise, Op 7, and Piano Concerto, Op 17, in 1860. For a time he lived the life of a travelling virtuoso, but from 1865 he lived a more stationary existence based in Warsaw, turning mainly to teaching and composing. He was the founder and first director of the Warsaw Music Society and later became the director of the music institute, where he reformed the curriculum and employed the youthful Paderewski as one of the institute’s instructors. Like Chopin, whose influence they reflect, many of Zarzycki’s works consisted of miniatures for the salon. Zarzycki composed works for piano, orchestra, orchestra and solo instrument, and 65 songs. He died in Warsaw in 1895.
