Stanisław Koźmian o drugim sezonie Tadeusza Pawlikowskiego
Stanislaw Koźmian On the Second Season of Tadeusz Pawlikowski’s Management
Languages of publication
The publication (prefaced with a necessary commentary) of three unnoticed so far and anonymous statements made by Stanisław Koźmian (born 1836) – a man who had greatly contributed to the valuable output of the Kraków theatre in 1865–1885 – about the second season (1894/95) of Tadeusz Pawlikowski’s (born 1861) management. Thanks to Pawlikowski, Kraków had the most important stage of the second half of the 1890s in Poland, a centre of artistic life and the first Polish theatre which took on a Modernist character. So far, there has been no known elaborate, direct statements made by the older theatre director about his younger successor’s activity and work. The texts are especially valuable due to the fact that two of them are concerned with the two most important premieres of these few months, for different reasons highlighted by the manager and the critics, and widely discussed; the third text assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the season. Koźmian, who knew a lot about directing and running a theatre, while distancing himself from the aesthetics and problems of the new art, was able to appreciate and respect Pawlikowski as a very talented director and theatre manager, in many respects corroborating the opinions coming from the Young Poland movement.
