Notes and Editorial Reviews
Just occasionally Chandos receives an unsolicited demo that is really special. This recording is a case in point - a disc of music by a composer little known outside her native Poland, presented with such passionate and persistent advocacy by violinist Joanna Kurkowicz that it was quite impossible to resist. The CD is the result of many years of research by Kurkowicz, who refers to the music, quite simply, as 'amazing'. Kurkowicz hopes that this recording will expand awareness of Bacewicz's importance as a major composer of the twentieth century.
