Stanislaw Moniuszko was Poland’s leading nineteenth-century opera composer,
and has been called the man who bridges the gap between Chopin and
Szymanowski. In addition to operatic works he also composed purely orchestral
music, and this recording reveals that his essentially lyric style could function
perfectly in the non-vocal medium. There is thematically memorable music from
the comic opera Hrabina (The Countess), as well as enduring Polish-flavoured
dance scenes from his most popular and famous stage work, Halka. The spirited
Mazurka from Straszny Dwór (The Haunted Manor), Moniuszko’s crowning
operatic achievement, draws freely and inventively from his national heritage.

Features a long-time Naxos stalwart, conductor Antoni Wit leading the
Warsaw Philharmonic which is considered to be Poland’s leading orchestra. This album contains orchestra excerpts from Moniszko’s internationally best known
opera, Halka. As a critic in 1928 wrote, ““no Polish dramatic composer
had previously expressed by dance-scenes the Polish national temperament
as perfectly as Moniuszko.”
