|Marian Porębski a Polish dramatic tenor was
born in 1910. His partner is Dominika Porębska-Kwaśnik - who is a dramatic soprano and a professor
of music from the Sorbonne (In French her name is QUASNIK, Dominique). There is an
article about them on this site,
On the photo Porębski is 94. He was born in Sosnowiec, Poland, and became a volunteer soldier during the war,
he got to Paris, where he made his debut in 1944. He became famous there, he sang a lot with Caballe on
different stages, and he met Dominika, who was born in Paris. He gave her singing lessons, and then she went
to the Sorbonne and became a very famous musicologist professor. She did her master's thesis on Porębski,
and after her doctorate she wrote many books
in French and Polish:|
