  • Description

    This album presents recordings of the complete works for solo piano by the composer, pianist and musicologist Marian Borkowski. These works were composed between 1955-1977 and belong to the early period of Borkowski's work.

    Their chronological arrangement on this album allows us to trace the evolution of the creator's style. From simple miniatures created before starting studies in composition, through Preludesin the spirit of Rachmaninoff's work, arch-Polish Mazurkas, romantic Variations, to avant-garde motor and percussionFragmentsand an unexpected return to neo-Romanticism in stylized Interludes of improvised origin.

    In a brilliant performanceby Marek Szlezer, known for many excellent interpretations of contemporary and romantic music, the complete collection of Borkowski's piano works confirms the composer's original contribution to the pianistic art of the 20th century.
