Lutoslawski: Songs & Carols
Composed by: Lutoslawski, Witold
This Dux Witold Lutosławski release is a comprehensive double-disc set of Songs and Carols arising almost exclusively out of the composer’s early years of the 1940s-50s. The largest opus, Disc Two’s Twenty Polish Carols for voice and piano (1946), is also the earliest work on this compilation, which includes several song cycles and a few standalone pieces. Fellow Fryderyk Chopin Music Academy, Warsaw graduates Anna Radziejewska (mezzo-soprano, Warsaw Chamber Opera soloist) and 20th – 21st c. music specialist Mariusz Rutkowski (pianist) are the set’s featured artists.
