Composers and creativity

Biogramy 60 kompozytorów wybranych do programu konkursu.

Here are biographies of 60 composers selected for the programme of the Competition. The lists of compositions contain all the works, found during the research, which qualify for the instrumental requirements stipulated in the rulebook of the Competition, including works which have hitherto been considered forgotten or which only exist in manuscript form.

Those items which can be purchased, rented or downloaded are attached with source references. The lists might not be complete and therefore it will be acceptable to use alternative available sheet music (legally obtained) or other compositions which will otherwise meet the requirements stipulated in the rulebook of the Competition (regarding specific composers and specific types of compositions).
