Notes & Reviews:

Elements of Polish nationalism, impressionism, Scribinesque mysticism, exotic scales and melodies form the basis of Szymanowski's musical language. His masterpiece "King Roger", based loosely on the "Bacchae" of Euripides explores the complex psychological relationship between the intellectual and ecstatic. -H&B
