A stylised image of Krzysztof Komeda's profile. At the bottom his name. Surrounding, an inscription "History of Polish Popular Music".

Krzysztof Komeda (born Krzysztof Trzciński; 1931–1969) was a Polish film music composer and jazz pianist. Perhaps best known for his work in film scores, Komeda wrote the scores for Roman Polanski’s films Knife in the Water (1962), Cul-de-sac (1966), The Fearless Vampire Killers (1967), and Rosemary’s Baby (1968). Komeda's album Astigmatic (1965) is widely regarded as one of the most important European jazz albums.
