Notes & Reviews:

One composer's folding together of Poland's distinctive folk traditions with neoclassical and post-romantic models, and the sound worlds of Penderecki and Górecki produce the striking music that you can hear on the sample provided with this review...

World Premiere Recording

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Gorecki's Three Pieces in Olden Style (1963) are lively and mobile, with a tasteful balance of folk scales, harmonies, and phrases. Moryto's Four Pieces in Polish Style (2011) and Twardowski's Triptych of the Virgin Mary (1973). Twardovski's piece has a dual topic - Polish folk and sacred themes - making for a more complex topography and a more serious tone. His piece is the most interesting to listen to.
