Born in Poland, the composer Martin Sadowski has lived in Darmstadt since 2002. His studies in composition took him to the Akademie für Tonkunst and the Stuttgarter Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst. One of Sadowski’s artistic emphases lies in the art music from outside of Europe, and in non-tempered tuning. Chamber music, improvisation and experimental music play extensive roles in his works. Martin Sadowski has been awarded many prizes in several international competitions (including TONALI 14, the Kompositionspreis der Bregenzer Festspiele, and the Günter-Bialas-Kompositionspreis).
