My thanks to Michał Kubicki for taking the trouble to photograph the new sign for Aleja Andrzeja Panufnika (Andrzej Panufnik Avenue).  It was unveiled yesterday in Warsaw in the presence of Panufnik’s widow Camilla and son Jeremy. Officials present included the Mayor of Warsaw.

The avenue is located in Morskie Oko (Eye of the Sea) Park in the Mokotów district south of Warsaw’s city centre.  It runs directly east from the arterial Puławska Street that heads south through Warsaw.  The newly-named avenue leads to the Szuster Palace, where one of Panufnik’s grandmothers once lived.  It was an area that Panufnik knew very well, and it is a nice touch that the Warsaw Music Society now has its headquarters in the palace.
