Notes and Editorial Reviews

This album’s virtuosic and highly expressive new music for the Double Bass features works written by two Polish composers, the award-winning composer Katarzyna Brochocka (also the pianist on this release) and the forgotten genius Mieczyslaw Weinberg, his only work written for this instrument. Polish double bassist Karol Kowal is an active international soloist and chamber musician. Especially devoted to contemporary music, he has premiered works written for him by composers including Ms. Brochocka, whose three works heard here are all receiving their world premiere recordings.
