  • Polish composers

    Bit of a long shot, I know, but do any of you Polish Jazz/Easy fans recognise the surnames 'Poznakowski' or 'Korzynski'? If the names ring any bells, and you can put first names to them (and possibly provide info on any other work they've done), can you put it here?

    Any help gratefully received - ta, chaps!

        For Poznakowski check here: fairly good piece on the 60s scene, including some background and interview with him about his career -

        All I know about Korzynski (if it&#39;s the same one Sermad names) is that he composed soundtracks for a few of Andrej Wajda&#39;s movies - never heard any of them (or more to the point, don&#39;t remember them from the films) but shouldn&#39;t be too hard to look him up on Internet Movie Database or at Allmovie Guide?

          Fascinating stuff - thanks very much.

          I should explain that all this is related to some tracks used on the BBC test card in the early 80s, so I wonder whether the Andrzej Korsynski tracks may have actually been Polish film music originally? Wojciech Kilar&#39;s theme from &#39;Shadow Line&#39; was another test card track, so it&#39;s quite possible.

          You don&#39;t happen to have any films with Korsynski music on them, do you Wayne?

            Not sure which ones he scored, but in the early 80s (during the whole Solidarity thing) Wajda&#39;s movies became arthouse staples for awhile, and I remember seeing things like &#39;Man Of Iron&#39; and &#39;Man Of Marble&#39; around that time (God, giving my age away now aren&#39;t I?). Not seen them since, and don&#39;t have them on video or anything, but do remember noticing a few things that jogged my memory when looking up stuff on other Polish OSTs by people like Komeda...Actually, easier to run a quick AMG search, and [nips over to new page, returns etc...] hey presto - some films he scored&#33;
