Biography

Felix Borowski (March 10, 1872 – September 6, 1956) was a British/American composer and teacher.

Borowski was of Polish descent but was born in the English village of Burton-in-Kendal, Westmorland. He was educated in London and at the Cologne Conservatory. After teaching for a while in Aberdeen, Felix moved to the USA as a young man, and became a composer, teacher, and newspaper critic in Chicago. He was the programme annotator for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from 1908-1956, and the CSO holds a collection of his original compositions, as well as arrangements by him of the works of others. In 1917, he was elected as an honorary member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia music fraternity.

One of his compositions for piano and violin (“Adoration”) was recorded on Edison Blue Amberol in 1914 (#2475) by Richard Czerwonky (1886-1949), also an American musician of Polish descent, being an outstanding violin-player and orchestra conductor at his time. Borowski wrote two large-scale and romantic Sonatas for the organ (1904 and 1906).

He is also known as professor of Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas (1899-1940) at Chicago Musical College during a period between 1918-22. He is known for his high notes.
