Pawel Szymanski was graduated with honours from the National Higher School of Music in Warsaw, where he studied composition with Wlodzimierz Kotonski (1974-78) and Tadeusz Baird (1978). Szymanski won numerous composing competitions including the Young Composers' Competition of The Polish Composers' Association in 1979, in the Works by Young Composers category at the Unesco International Composers' Tribune in Paris in 1981, and the Sacred Music Composition Contest of the Internationale Bachakademie in Stuttgart in 1985. In 1993 Szymanski received the annual award of the Polish Composers' Association, followed by the Grand Prix of the Culture Foundation in January 1994.

Pawel Szymanski's music is performed all over the world and a number of his works were commissioned by European institutions and festivals and were premiered by world-famous musicians. Pawel Szymanski’s music is highly sophisticated and always subject to strict technical discipline, yet it enthralls the listener with its variety of emotions and moods ranging from sensuous sound play to metaphysical musings.
