In recognition of Penderecki’s contributions to the music of our time, a group of scholars came together in Poland on the occasion of Penderecki’s 60th birthday celebration in 1993 to discuss how this burgeoning interest in Penderecki scholarship could be enhanced, focused and made available to the worldwide academic and musical
community. These initial discussions led to a meeting in June 1994
in the polish city of Cracow where a mission statement was developed
an editorial board was identified and elected, and a decision was
made to move forward with a plan to create an annual publication with
the working title “studies in Penderecki”. It was also decided that
the language of the journal would be English. The present volume is
a result of these efforts. The editorial board has chosen to focus
this initial volume on a retrospective view of the composer’s career
by commissioning four major articles on the topic: “Krzysztof
Penderecki: a career in retrospect”.
