On January 23, 2021, the music world celebrated the hundredth anniversary of the death of Wladyslaw Zelenski, the founder and long-time director of the Music Conservatory in Kraków, and one of the most outstanding representatives of the Romantic era in Poland. This album contains studio recordings of two great chamber works, showing the excellent compositional technique of the Polish composer. Recordings of both works make the listener aware of the enormous potential of Zelenski as a composer. What’s more, each of the pieces, despite the apparent simplicity and formal transparency, is marked by a large dose of individualism and expressive and social distinctiveness. All this makes the above-mentioned works by Zelenski one of the greatest showpieces in the history of chamber music in the world.
