Jozef Koffler earned a firm place in music history as one of the first Polish and European twelve-tone composers. Born in Stryj, he returned to his home region in 1924 after his education in Vienna and settled in Lemberg, where he was active not only a composer but also as a charismatic teacher and music journalist. The investigation of Koffler's oeuvre has shown that he adopted Schonberg's method of composition with twelve interrelated tones and applied it in a most highly creative manner, often modifying its strict rules in order to achieve the desired artistic result.
