Born 1949, Bydgoszcz, Poland. He as prolific as his work is diverse. His early years in Poland writing for cinema and theatre are still traceable inluences but his compositional stlye owes more to the dramatic shift which occurred on meeting Nadia Boulanger in 1976. An encounter which "changed my way of thinking, my artistic ethic...I understood that the responsabilityof the artist is to professional rigour...not to waste the gift which not his alone...". There is immense suppleness in his work, straddling multiple techniques of composition, tradition and iconoclasm. Piotr Moss would probably allign himself with the romantics and neo-romantics, and it is the essential humanism pervading his work that renders it immediately more accessible and less hermetic than that of his contemporaries.
