Polish composer and conductor; in 1966 Penderecki accepted many composition residencies abroad, including appointments at the Volkwäng Hochschule für Musik, Essen (1966-8), in Berlin under the aegis of the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (1968-70), and at Yale University (1973-8). In 1972 he was appointed rector of the Kraków Academy, a post he held for 15 years, during which time martial law was imposed in Poland. There have been festivals of his music both in Kraków and, periodically since 1980, at his restored manor house in nearby Lusławice, where he has cultivated a fine garden, including a labyrinth and arboretum. Penderecki's career as a conductor began in earnest in 1972, when he recorded seven of his own works for EMI. He has since conducted mainly in the USA and throughout Europe, becoming associated with the music of Shostakovich as well as his own works. From 1987 to 1990 he was artistic director of the Kraków PO, and in 1988 he became principal guest conductor with the NDR SO, Hamburg.)
