Notes and Editorial Reviews

This new release is another publication presenting the artistic output of Krzysztof Meyer, one of the most outstanding Polish contemporary composers. The three original songs on this album are instrumental music, in which various narratives are composed of different narratives and dramaturgies; from full musical erudition Hommage à Johannes Brahms , through virtuoso Concerto No. 2 for flute and orchestra to reflective Farewell Music , devoted to Witold Lutos?awski. The orchestra's culminating piece is Mass for mixed choir, organ and orchestra - as much musical expression, full of intelligent references to the history of perhaps the most demanding genre in the history of European composition art.
