Mieczyslaw Karlowicz
Birth: Dec. 11, 1876
Death: Feb. 8, 1909

An important representative of "Young Poland", an early 20th Century movement that combined Polish nationalist impulses with modern European techniques. His style is romantic and melancholy in character, and has a strong individual stamp. Among his notable works are the Symphony in E minor ("Revival", 1902), a Violin Concerto (1902), the "Lithuanian Rhapsody" for orchestra (1906), and symphonic poems "Eternal Songs" (1906), "The Sorrowful Tale" (1908), and "Episode at a Masquerade" (1908). Karlowicz was born into a noble family in Wiszniewo, Poland (now Vishneva, Belarus), and initially trained as a violinist; later he studied composition in Warsaw (1894) and Berlin (1895 to 1901). In the early 1900s he was director and a chief financial supporter of the Polish Music Society, which promoted new musical trends. An active outdoorsman, Karlowicz died at 32 in an avalanche during an expedition in the Tatra Mountains. A memorial stone marks the place where his body was recovered. There is also a cenotaph for him at the Tatras Symbolic Cemetery, at the foot of Mount Ostrva in neighboring Slovakia, which honors those who perished in the mountain range. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
