Abstract.

The subject of this article is the comparison of the work of renowned Polish composers of the XX century – Andrzej Panufnik (1914-1991) and Roman Palester (1907-1989). By the early 1950’s both composers were successful not only at home, but also in the countries of the Western Europe. But the desire for freedom of creative expression motivated them to elect the difficult path of being emigrants. From the mid 1950’s the work of Panufnik and Palester became banned in Poland, and all their future works faced the uneasy path of winning new audiences, first in England and Switzerland, and then, from the 1980’s, at home. The novelty of this research consists in the comparison of the creative paths and compositional principles of both composers, and presentation of their work to the Russian readers. A special emphasis is made on the fact that in continuing their path of emigration, the composers referred not only to new techniques of composition, but also to the traditions of Polish music. Preferring traditional genres of symphonic music, both have demonstrated remarkable creative innovation in their individual approach towards dodecaphony. We can certainly state that the works of Panufnik and Palester written during emigration have substantially enriched the scene of development of modern Polish music.

Keywords: Andrzej Panufnik, Roman Palester, Polish music, serial technique, dodecaphony, Polish avant-garde, aleatory, panufnikovskaya sound box, "Warsaw Autumn", Polish symphony
