He was born on 17th June 1930 in Vilnius. His first contact with music was in 1942 when he started learning to play the violin with W. Gelarda. As a student of the State University School of Music of the Lithuanian SSR he met T. Baird and H. Czyż in Vilnius. This meeting confirmed the composer in his decision to leave Vilnius, which he did after obtaining the School’s diploma in 1957. In Warsaw where he came to live he was admitted to the third year of studies in Bolesław Woytowicz’s music composition class at the State Higher School of Music. He graduated from it in 1960. In 1963 and 1966, as a participant of the French government scholarship program, he supplemented his music composition studies with Nadia Boulanger as his instructor. He is one of the most prolific Polish composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. His output includes over 300 works, most of which have become a permanent part of concert life in Poland and abroad. Romuald Twardowski has been cooperating with the Publishing House EUTERPE since 2007.
