Bugaj, Kasia
Journal of Historical Research in Music Education, v38 n1 p72-86 Oct 2016
The figure of Tadeusz Wronski is highly respected by the music establishment in Poland. One of the eminent Polish violinists of his generation, his pedagogical contributions form the cornerstone of the Polish violin school during the second half of the twentieth century. His involvement with numerous music-related causes and organizations contributed to the efficient rebuilding of the performance infrastructure in a country devastated by World War II. In the United States, his influence extends to more than four hundred students who studied with him during his two decades of teaching at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. This article examines the life of Tadeusz Wronski, focusing on his experiences prior to his tenure at Indiana University, his contributions to the Polish music establishment, his one-of-a-kind international competition for solo violin, and his vision of a unique curriculum designed for the efficient training of string students enrolled in teacher training programs.
