Andrzej Korzyński (born March 2, 1940 in Warsaw, Poland) is a Polish composer, arranger, pianist and organist.
In 1964 he graduated from the Social State Higher School of Music in Warsaw. 
He was a disciple of prof. Kazimierz Sikorski and studied composition and conducting. 
In 1965, together with Mateusz Święcicki and Witold Pograniczny founded Radio Studio "Rytm".
His creative partnership with Polish filmmaker Andrzej Żuławski 
is probably the most enduring and creatively fertile chapter in Korzyński’s career. 
The pair first worked together on Żuławski’s debut feature "The Third Part of the Night", 
and they would work on two more, "Devil" (1972) and "The Important Thing Is to Love" (1975),
before they would create what would be their defining and best work, 1981’s "Possession". 
Starring Sam Neil and Isabelle Adjani, the film was banned in the United Kingdom under the notorious Video Nasties list, 
but earned a dedicated cult following in the decades that followed. 
Korzyński’s minimal electronic score was highly sought after by collectors for many years until 2012, 
when the revered Finders Keepers label lovingly reissued it along with "The Third Part of the Night". 
The fruitful partnership of Żuławski and Korzyński would be seen and heard again on the films 
"On the Silver Globe" (1988), "Szamanka" (1996), and "Fidelity" (2000).
Throughout the ‘90s and 2000s, the Polish composer continued to work on various TV and film projects.
