Notes & Reviews:

"Lee's set is more "complete" than the others by virtue of three minutes; namely a never before recorded Prelude in C sharp minor from 1901. This is a startling find, as Szymanowski's relatively modest known output for piano has been established for some time and, while the existence of other, particularly early, pieces has been postulated his worklist has proven stubbornly intractable to expansion. Szymanowski's piano music covers his entire 35-year career as a composer and moves with, and at times, a little ahead of, the stream of musical developments current in his time. Lee moves right along with the composer -- she is luxuriantly romantic in the early works, free flowing and dynamic in the Scriabin influenced middle works (check out what a wonderful job she does in "Calypso" from Metopes) and pithy, tart and perfectly timed in the more acerbic, whimsical late works. While the "new" prelude is very attractive, you should get this set because it is such a terrific survey of Szymanowski's works overall, a highly significant cycle within twentieth-century piano music." -All Music
