Polish composer Karol Szymanowski died on this day 75 years ago.

Szymanowski was a founder member of the Młoda Polska (Young Poland) movement in 1905. His early style was very similar to Chopin and Scriabin, with a middle period assimilating influences from Debussy and Ravel and a sparer late style incorporating Polish folk music.
