Tadeusz Baird „Elegia per orchestra” 1973:
Sieć: „Movie-star handsome Tadeusz Baird became an early activist in 1949 when he became a founding member of Group 49, although its purpose was not to break rules but to conform to socio-musical orthodoxy. By 1956, however, with a change of leadership in Warsaw, Poland’s artistic gates opened, letting serialism in. In that same year, Baird and Sikorski founded Warsaw Autumn, a festival of contemporary music that quickly became one of Europe’s most daring and enduring. In later interviews Baird insisted on „knowledge and respect for tradition . . . seeking effects and attention [only] leads to a 'pretended’ avant-garde”.
