Poland has a rich history of classical music far beyond "Chopin" going back to the Medieval era. List of Polish composers - Wikipedia Even the famed Russian classical composer Igor Starvinsky was actually of a strongly Polish background, so much he apparently wanted to become a citizen of Poland, but Poland was suspicious of his Russian origins. Of course speaking of "Dramatic" Penderecki was very dramatic. But, of course Polish music goes also far beyond Classical. Tomasz Stanko is my personal favorite Jazz musician.
