Summary/Abstract: The author approaches the works of Karol Szymanowski—treated both as a subject and as an object—in an intertextual dialogue within the field of music. The article begins with a quick overview of intertextuality as a concept. The main aim of the article is to highlight the intertextual references to Szymanowski’s music. Those references, according to the author, are of a twofold nature: they can be either found in the works of Szymanowski themselves, through quotations, borrowings and styling his music after other composers (the subjective aspect), or they can be traced to works of other 20th‑century composers, who referred toSzymanowski’s oeuvre in their own music (the objective aspect). This analysis, in turn, leads to the conclusion that a lively dialogue between various texts of music constitutes a guarantee of the pleasure which comes from listening as well as an indisputable value in the domain of art.
