Notes & Reviews:

After the Second World War, the Polish composer Tadeusz Szeligowski settled in Poznan, where he was instrumental in the formation of the Poznan Philharmonic and served as its first director. In his 'Four Polish Dances,' Szeligowski explores the rich culture of his homeland’s folk music, as did many of his Polish contemporaries. The virtuosic 'Piano Concerto' is written in the neo-classical style that Szeligowski mastered during his studies in Paris, and his 'Concerto for Orchestra,' one of the first compositions to tackle this form, is an impressive contribution to the European orchestral repertoire of the first half of the twentieth century.
