Western Audiences[edit]

How much of the Western audiences were keen to support anti-Soviet moves? Usually, you would expect the "intellectuals" to listen to this music first, and much of them has naive notions and support of and for the Soviets and communism. --~~


this is wikipedia (ie. your question is fine, but shouldn't belong here) 84.238.11.216 (talk) 00:10, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

The strange (IMO POV) sentence the anonymous poster alludes to is still in the article, however. -- megA (talk) 15:51, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Jonny Greenwood[edit]

Apparently he has cited Penderecki as an influence - see here for example. Malick78 (talk) 20:17, 13 March 2008 (UTC)

Armenian?[edit]

Someone can source this, right?Jjsciortino (talk) 05:31, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Apparently not. Google "Penderecki Armenia" and you get lots of hits, but zero that I can find that makes him in any way an Armenian citizen, resident, or anything else. Closest is apparently some Armenian ancestry, but so what. I'm taking these references to Armenia out. -- Jack of Oz ... speak! ... 13:24, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Infobox[edit]

Quite apart from there being an apparent consensus against infoboxes for composers, this one had several problems. Background colour was for "non performing personnel", which doesn't seem right. It's not clear why his "origin" and place of birth are different. Genre of classical music is unhelpful. Years active stated "1953-", so what happened in 1953? I removed it while I was extending the lead. --RobertGtalk 16:54, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

FA push?[edit]

First of all, I would like to thank all of those who have contributed to this article. I am thinking about making this article as a featured article so we can feature it as a TFA on the main page for the 80th birthday of Penderecki, 23 November 2013. There are some things we need to do before this article is ready to be nominated for FA status. Here are some suggestions:

  • Lead section - can be expanded upon to three or four paragraphs.
  • Biography - can be expanded upon as well with his early years, important compositions and works, and his life with other composers.
  • Works - we can also expand on it to include styles and Penderecki's composition history and styles as well, and also include at least some reception.
  • Citations - can be expanded upon with Polish-language and English-language books (this also includes English translations for Polish-language material)
  • Honours and awards - some of the listings can be reformatted to prose as well.

All are welcome to assist in this process and if any of you have any further suggestions discuss them here. Thanks, Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 01:12, 1 December 2012 (UTC)
