Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Displaying exceptional musical precocity, the young pianist Maria Szymanowska proved a sensation in Warsaw's salons, before moving to Paris where her fame spread. Greatly admired by her contemporaries, who included Beethoven, Cherubini, Field and Tamasek, she later also cast a spell over the elderly Goethe during one of her many long European tours. Alexander Kostritsa received his BAchelor and Master of Music degrees from the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and his Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music. He is a prizewinner of international piano competitions, including the Premio Rovere d'Oro, the Slavic Music Festival and the Paul Badura-Skoda.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Polish composer Maria Syzmanowska (1789-1831) may not be well known, but in her day she was active in the Warsaw salons and traveled to Paris, where her music impressed Rossini and Cherubini. Her dances for piano are light, accessible salon pieces that would also be appropriate for students. Kostritsa's work in collecting these dances is commendable, as is his approach. In the Polonaises his straightforward playing captures well the simple phrasing, form, and rather nondescript melody. These works are pleasing.
