Zbigniew Preisner

Zbigniew Preisner born 20 May 1955 as Zbigniew Antoni Kowalski is a Polish film score composer, best known for his work with film director Krzysztof Kieślowski. Zbigniew Preisner was born in Bielsko-Biała, and studied history and philosophy in Kraków. Never having received formal music lessons, he taught himself music by listening and transcribing parts from records. His compositional style represents a distinctively spare form of tonal neo-Romanticism. Paganini and Jean Sibelius are acknowledged influences. Preisner is best known for the music composed for the films directed by fellow Pole Krzysztof Kieślowski. (Source: Wikipedia)
