2014 is the Polish-born composer’s centenary and the website provides a welcome overview for those researching repertoire for the celebrations.

As well as details of Panufnik’s music and soundclips of his works, the website offers a gallery of photographs, many never seen before, and detailed biographical information. Social history and musical life intertwine in Panufnik’s personal story: survival in wartime Warsaw and the Nazi occupation, political pressures under the Soviet-led regime, escape to the UK, challenges in exile, and the composer’s momentous return visit to Warsaw in 1990.
