Sanecki began teaching in 1985, while still studying, he led the piano class at the State Music School Stanisław Moniuszko in Łódź. In 1987 he began working as an assistant in the Department of Chamber Music at the Academy of Music in Łódź with Bronisław Hajna. Starting in 1992, he began to lead the piano class at the Music Schools Complex in Częstochowa, where he served as the Head of the Piano Department.

In 2012, he was elected Rector of the Academy of Music in Łódź for the period from September 1, 2012, to August 31, 2016. Mr Sanecki has received the Bronze Cross of Merit and the Pro Publico Bono Medal for his artistic and pedagogical activities.

Undoubtedly the leading Polish composer between Chopin and Lutosławski, Karol Szymanowski drew inspiration from a wide range of influences, which he later merged with his explorations of folk music from his native Poland. Together with writers and visual artists, Szymanowski was part of the Young Poland movement, which offended the conservative establishment. A 1907 commentary read the Young Poland composers were, “possessed by some evil spirit that deprived their work and stripped it of personal and national characteristics.” Szymanowski expressed his attitude toward “national characteristics” asserting, “Let our music be national in its Polish characteristics but not falter in striving to attain universality. Let it be national, but not provincial.”

All the birds pay tribute to me

for today I wed a goddess.

And now we stand by the lake in crimson blossom

in flowing tears of joy, with rapture and fear,

burning in amorous conflagration.
