Educated in music at the Warsaw Conservatory from 1872. From 1878, he taught piano at the Conservatory. In 1884, he went to Vienna and studied under Theodore Leschetizky, while at the same time teaching at the Strasbourg Conservatory. He made his debut as a concert pianist in Vienna in 1887 and gave performances in Paris, London and New York over the next four years. He was very popular with the public. He moved to Switzerland in 1898 and in 1899 married the Baroness von Rosen, Helena Gorska. He produced his opera, Manru, in Dresden in 1901. In 1909, he became the Director of the Warsaw Conservatory. During World War I, he was a member of the Polish National Committee and was its representative to the United States. There, he convinced President Wilson to include the cause of Polish independence in his Fourteen Points. In 1919, he joined the Polish government as minister of foreign affairs, but received so much criticism that he resigned and returned to Switzerland, never returning to Poland. In 1922, he performed at Carnegie Hall and toured the U.S. Paderewski's wife died in 1934. He returned to politics at the outbreak of the Second World War and the invasion of Poland, joining the Polish government in exile in London and raised a great deal of money for Polish Relief funds with his many concerts. It was during his concert tour in the U.S. that he contracted pneumonia in 1941 and died. Paderewski produced numerous piano pieces, a symphony, chamber music and pieces for voice. As a pianist, he is regarded as one of the virtuosos of the 20th century.
