 Update me on new releases by Skrowaczewski

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski (b1923)

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski began to play the piano and violin at the age of four, composed his first symphonic work at seven, gave his first public piano recital when he was eleven, and two years later played and conducted Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Lwów Musical Association; two of his compositions were performed by the Lwów Philharmonic Orchestra in 1940. He studied composition, conducting, musicology and philosophy at the Lwów Musical Academy and University, completing his studies at the Conservatory in Kraków in 1945. A hand injury sustained during the war terminated his keyboard career, after which he concentrated on composing and conducting. He was appointed conductor of the Wrocław Philharmonic Orchestra in 1946 and in the following year won the Szymanowski Prize for Composition, which enabled him, with the help of a French government grant, to study composition with Nadia Boulanger and conducting with Paul Kletzki in Paris.
