Krzysztof Komeda (born Krzysztof Trzciński; 27 April 1931 – 23 April 1969) was a Polish film music composer and jazz pianist. Perhaps best known for his work in film scores, Komeda wrote the scores for Roman Polanski’s films Knife in the Water (1962), Cul-de-sac (1966), The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967), and Rosemary’s Baby (1968).
In December 1968 Komeda was critically injured in a skiing accident outside Los Angeles. His wife brought him home to Warsaw, where he died four days short of his 38th birthday. Bio by: Bobb Edwards
Mar 04, 2009 · Komeda died months after an accident whilst out partying with friends in 1969, which was mistreated in the hospital afterwards.

During thirteen years that passed between the 1st Sopot Jazz Festival and Komeda's tragic death, the artistic personality of Krzysztof Trzcinski became more mature, crystallized and lyrically poetic.
Apr 24, 2019 · Komeda died just four months after he was accidentally pushed over an escarpment by another of their mutual friends, Polish rebel-writer Marek Hłasko. His injuries led to hematoma of the brain and he died in a coma after his family had him transported to Warsaw (after receiving the news Hłasko committed suicide in Germany at the age of 35).
Like all the greats, his death is shrouded in mystery. He died in Warsaw from brain injuries with claims of an earlier car accident in LA being the cause, while Roman Polański wrote that a grappling bout with writer Marek Hłasko could have been to blame. The truth will never be known.
The album that resulted, “Litania: Music of Krzysztof Komeda” (ECM), met with huge international acclaim. It reawakened interest in a musician whose significance outside his native Poland had, in the years since his premature death in 1969, begun to disappear under the weight of jazz history.
Oct 29, 2020 · The details of Komeda's death are contested and murky, but that he fell at his home and suffered what later proved to be a fatal head injury are the bare bones of the truth. We may never know, as all the alleged witnesses that night are long since dead.
