MAJERSKI:CONCERTO-POEM



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The Polish pianist-composer Tadeusz Majerski (1888–1963) wrote some of the most interesting Polish music of his day, bringing together late-Romantic sensitivity and the harmonic freedom of Schoenbergian modernism – although primacy of emotional expression was always his watchword. In spite of his musical importance, Majerski spent his entire life in Lwów (now Lviv in Ukraine) and so has been almost completely lost from sight. This first album dedicated to his work presents one of his major scores, the rhapsodic Concerto-Poem for piano and orchestra, as well as two powerful chamber works and a number of representative piano miniatures. An extensive interview with the composer Andrzej Nikodemowicz, now in his 90s, brings personal memories of Majerski and paints a vivid picture of his difficult life in Lviv under Soviet occupation Michal Drewnowski is the pianist who has discovered Majerski and is making him known to the outside world – a task in which this release is a major step.
