Polish composer, pianist and teacher Czesław Marek was born on 14 September 1891 in Przemyśl, where he first studied, and then in Vienna with Theodor Leschetizky and Karl Weigl and in Strasbourg with Hans Pfitzner.
He became professor of piano in Lwów in 1914 but had to flee with his parents a few months later, because of the German invasion, first to Prague and then to Zurich, where he worked as a concert pianist, taught, composed and made friends with Busoni.
Czesław Marek died in Zurich on 17 July 1985, aged ninety-three.
