Alexandre Tansman is one of the most outstanding Polish composers
of the 20th century. He was born in Łódź in 1897. He gained
his education in his home-town and Warsaw. In 1919 he decided
to move to Paris, where he was extremely successful and gained
international recognition. He spent the years of the World War II in
Hollywood and then returned to Paris in 1946. That was when the
composer achieved creative maturity.

Tansman’s music is characterised by lyricism, emotionalism, vitality
(which was a heritage of his Polish-Jewish origin) and sophisticated
sound and elegance (influenced by French culture). The
composer was interested in different types of music – from jazz
through artistic music to various kinds of folklore. For this reason
it can be said that he was crossing cultural borders, although the
Polish culture was always the closest to him. He left a legacy of
more than 400 works, a testimony to his versatile artistic interests.
It consists of symphonies, chamber music, concertos, operas, oratorios,
ballets, piano music, works for violin, cello, guitar, flute,
organ, harp, as well as theatre, film and radio music. His achievements
are of particular importance from the point of view of European
neoclassicism, although other tendencies are also present
in Tansman’s creative output. The composer died in Paris in 1986.

To honour the memory of Alexandre Tansman and to celebrate
the 120th anniversary of the composer’s birthday, in 2017
the Karol Lipiński Academy of Music in Wrocław made an effort
to release a monographic publication devoted to this artist who is
so important for Polish music culture. The book contains 13 texts
written by theoreticians, musicologists, publicists and music editors
from Poland and the United States, as well as the composer’s
daughters: Mireille Tansman-Zanuttini from Italy and Marianne
Tansman-Martinozzi from France. The aim of the publication was
to show the composer’s work in a broad perspective of biography,
history, style, aesthetics, axiology and composer’s technique. It also
took into account the issue of the reception of Tansman’s music
and the promotion of his achievements.
