descriptions, reviews, &c.

"When dealing with art, we deal with mystery - something that needs to be pursued but remains impossible to satisfyingly explain or define. The mystery is obviously present in the works of this unusual pair of composers: Julius Eastman and Tomasz Sikorski. When we couple these artists that appear to have little in common, we eventually reach a degree of affinity, compatibility, or harmony on two levels. The first is an aesthetic affinity. It can be said that both composers simply based their musical language on repetition. Yet it is not simply a matter of minimal music, because Sikorski was no typical minimalist, although he limited his compositional means to an absolute minimum, a residue. Eastman, on the other hand, could be called a maximalist, which is a strange type of minimalism."-Bolt



"Tomasz Sikorski was a minimalist composer and pianist based in Warsaw. He was born on 19th May 1939, and died on 13th November 1988.

From 1956 to 1962, he studied composition at the Higher State School of Music in Warsaw under his father, Kazimierz Sikorski (gaining a diploma with honours) and piano under Zbigniew Drzewiecki. From 1961 to 1963, he worked at Polish Radio's Experimental Studio, then between 1963 and 1968 he worked as a teacher: he led classes in instrumentation and score-reading at the Department of Composition, Conducting and Music Theory at his alma mater. In 1962, he received the Special Mention at the Young Composers Competition organised by the Polish Composers' Union and a year later, he debuted at the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music with his composition Antyfony ("Antiphones") for soprano, piano, horn, bells, 2 gongs, 2 tam-tams and tape (1963). From this moment on, his compositions were invited to festival concerts every year.

Sikorski lived in Paris for a year in 1965 thanks to a scholarship from the French government, and in 1975 he lived in New York under the auspices of a Senior-Fulbright Scholarship. During his year in NYC, he worked at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center and wrote his Solitude of Sounds for tape. In 1964, he became a member of the Polish Composers' Union, and was a member of the board from 1973 to 1975. From 1966 to 1974, he worked for the Repertoire Commission of the Warsaw Autumn festival and was even the chairman during his last year there. He was also an active pianist. From 1963 to 1967, he worked with a band called Warsztat Muzyczny (with Zygmunt Krauze), and from 1967 until the mid-1970s with the group Ad Novum (with Zbigniew Rudziński). He also performed his own music at concerts in Stockholm, Athens, Brussels, the USA and Japan."-http://culture.pl website
