Thanks, Sicmu, for the Zulawski Suite in the Old Style Smiley! I had never heard of this composer before. As well as being a musician, Zulawski was also an eminent alpinist, but, unfortunately, this career led to his tragic early death at age 41 when he died during a rescue action on Mount Blanc Sad. I wonder, what is it with Polish composers dying in mountain climbing accidents (Karlowicz is the most notable and tragic of these)? Here's his Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wawrzyniec_Zulawski
Actually, Karlowicz was a cross-country skier, not an alpinist.  I think that's what he was doing when the avalanche killed him.
