Tomasz Napoleon Nidecki (January 2, 1807 in Studzianka, near Radom - June 5, 1852 Warsaw) was a Polish composer, conductor and teacher.

Biography[edit]

He studied composition with Józef Elsner between 1824-27 at the Warsaw School for Music and Dramatic Art and Higher School of Music, thus making him a classmate of Frédéric Chopin. According to Eugeniusz Szulc via Halina Goldberg's book Music in Chopin's Warsaw (272), Chopin and Nidecki were both chorus or orchestra members of the Lutheran Holy Trinity Church, Warsaw. During his second visit to Vienna, Chopin met Nidecki, who was studying there between 1828-31. In 1833, Nidecki became director of Theater in der Leopoldstadt. In 1838 he returned to Warsaw and in 1840 took over the directorship from Karol Kurpinski at the Grand Theatre, Warsaw.
