Wojciech Kilar (b. July 17, 1932 in Lwów, Poland now L'viv, Ukraine) is a Polish classic music and film composer.

Kilar studied in Katowice and later on in Paris with Nadia Boulanger. He won several prices for his works and belongs (together with Krzysztof Penderecki and Henryk Górecki to the Polish avantgarde of the Sixties. His orchestral work Krzesany (Climbing up the mountains) from 1974 became famous, but since the mid 1970s he has become well known as a composer of film scores, increasingly in Hollywood (working with Roman Polanski).
