Michał Kulenty

(*1956, +2017)

Warsaw-based composer and multi-instrumentalist, author of film soundtracks, incidental music to theater performances and radio plays. Kulenty moves between various music genres – he has composed symphony, choral, sacral, and jazz pieces. His compositions present a musical vision of Polishness: personal, inspired by Polish folklore, and timelessly spiritual. (AM)
