Composer: Escape From Tomorrow.
Korzeniowski’s scores have received tremendous critical enthusiasm and numerous awards, most notably two Golden Globe nominations, and three World Soundtrack Awards. His original music for Tom Ford’s A Single Man, starring Colin Firth and Julianne Moore, was greeted with immediate acclaim. The score caught the attention of Madonna, who invited him to create music for her feature film W.E.. Evgeni’s Waltz, a piano piece from W.E., became the basis of a new version of Madonna’s hit Like a Virgin, performed during her 2012 MDNA world tour. Born in Krakow, Poland, Korzeniowski studied classical composition under Krzysztof Penderecki. In 2006, he moved to Los Angeles, where he currently resides.
