JAN KRZYWICKI was born in 1948 in Philadelphia. Called "superbly crafted," "touching," "poignant," "captivating," "atmospheric," and "profound" by critics, his music has achieved wide recognition through performances by ensembles such as the Colorado Quartet, the Chestnut Brass Company, the Pennsylvania Ballet, Network for New Music, Alea III, and others. His music has also been heard throughout the United States, in Europe, South America, and Asia, at many music conferences and on National Public Radio. Commissions from prestigious performers and organizations such as the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, The Music Group, Orchestra 2001,the Mendelssohn Club, among others, have led to awards from The Aaron Copland Fund, ASCAP, and Meet the Composer, as well as a prestigious Pew Fellowship, and a Rockefeller Foundation grant. His works can be heard on the Albany, Capstone, North/South, and De Haske labels.
Krzywicki studied with Joseph Castaldo, with Vincent Persichetti at the Juilliard School, with Nadia
Boulanger at the Ecole de Beaux Arts Americaines, with Darius Milhaud
at the Aspen Music School, and with Edward Mattila and John Pozdro at
the University of Kansas.
Krzywicki is also active as a conductor and educator. As conductor for the contemporary ensemble Network for New Music, Krzywicki has led a large number of local and world premieres. Since 1987 he has been a member of the music theory department at Temple University, while also guest lecturing at various universities.
