Korzeniowski won the 2009 IFMCA Award for Best Drama score for A Single Man; he was also nominated for Breakout Composer of the Year. A Single Man was the directorial debut of fashion guru Tom Ford, and featured an Oscar-nominated performance by Colin Firth as a British college professor in 1960s Los Angeles coming to terms with the death of his long-term partner.
The score was one of 2009’s most critically acclaimed works; IFMCA member Tom Hoover described it as a “captivating score that has a beauty about it that is difficult to dismiss “. It was also nominated for a Golden Globe award.
Korzeniowski, who recieved great acclaim for his new score to the classic silent fim Metropolis, moved from his native Poland to the United States in the mid-2000s. His work in 2009 also included the animated science fiction adventure Battle for Terra.
