Witold Lutoslawski (1/25/1913 - 2/07/1994)

Witold Lutosławski was born on 25 January 1913. The years of World War One were spent in and around Moscow, where his father and uncle were executed by the Bolsheviks for alleged counter-revolutionary activities. Returning to Warsaw in 1919, Lutosławski studied the violin with a former pupil of Joachim and, from 1927, composition with Rimsky-Korsakov’s pupil Witold Maliszewski. In 1933 he abandoned his study of mathematics at Warsaw University to enter the Warsaw Conservatory. The première in 1939 of his Symphonic Variations marked his professional début as a composer, but World War Two curtailed plans for study in Paris. Taken prisoner as an officer cadet, he escaped and returned to Warsaw, spending the war years performing in ‘unofficial’ concerts and recitals, often with the composer Andrzej Panufnik.
