(b Lwów, 7 July 1882; d Kraków, 27 Oct 1953). Polish musicologist, composer and conductor. He studied music with Stanisław Niewiadomski and Henryk Jarecki at Lwów and musicology with Guido Adler in Vienna (1902–6), where he took the doctorate with a dissertation on Gomółka’s psalms. During his stay in Vienna he also studied composition under Herman Grädener and Arnold Schoenberg. In 1911 he completed the Habilitation at Kraków with a work on Italian influences on Polish music. He was successively lecturer in music history (1911), reader (1917) and full professor (1921) at Kraków University and later director of its musicology institute until his death. He gave courses at the universities and learned institutions of Rome, Padua, Bologna, Venice, Frankfurt, Vienna and Budapest. In 1934 he initiated a series of publications entitled Rozprawy i Notatki Muzykologiczne, in which he intended to bring out works by Kraków musicologists.
Jachimecki’s main field was the history of music; his studies are generally comprehensive explorations of their subject. He wrote a number of monographs on composers including Chopin, Haydn, Mozart, Moniuszko, Szymanowski, Wagner and Wolf, several versions (gradually expanded) of the history of Polish music, and a great many valuable papers on specific problems treated in detail. His wide interests in music history included early music and contemporary composers. His attention always focussed on important problems and his work on Polish music in particular was often of a pioneering nature.
He was an active music and theatre (especially opera) reviewer, and wrote many popular articles on music, contributed to musical periodicals such as Muzyka and Muzyka polska, and non-musical newspapers including Głos narodu, Przegląd polski and Ilustrowany kurier codzienny. Between 1908 and 1924 he conducted symphonic concerts in Kraków; he also composed symphonic pieces and, in particular, songs (published in Kraków and Warsaw), chiefly to texts by Polish poets such as Asnyk, Rydel and Staff.
