Stojowski, Sigismund

Suite in E flat for grand orchestra Op. 9

Sigismund Stojowski is a Polish composer, pianist, and teacher. He began playing the piano at a young age, taking lessons
from his mother before studying with Wladyslaw Żeleński and Ignacy Jan Paderewski in Kraków. He then attended the
Paris Conservatoire, where he studied piano with Louis Diémer and composition with Léo Delibes. He became widely
known for his talent as a concert pianist and performed successful concerts in Paris, London, Brussels, and Berlin. In
1905, Stojowski moved to the United States to head the piano department at the New York Institute of Musical Art, the
predecessor to The Juilliard School. Stojowski was the first Polish composer to have an entire program of his works
programmed by the New York Philharmonic, but his productivity as a composer diminished as he settled in America and
his priorities shifted to teaching and performing. He left NYIMA in 1911, and eventually opened up a very successful
studio of private students. Stojowski enjoyed a great career as a pianist and performed with many of the major orchestras,
including the New York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera, the Boston Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, and
the Cincinnati Symphony under Leopold Stokowski. …
