There is good reason that romantic music (because it would be a gross over-simplification to say that this style refers solely to the 19th century) is considered by musicologists to be the style that best embodies the spirit of romanticism, which blossoms with varying intensity throughout the history of European cultural development. Nevertheless it is true, that this style, that combines both national and folk elements and sublimely expresses a wide range of feelings, was at its peak at that time. The rapid and simultaneous development of the other arts such as poetry, painting and theatre also had a major influence on music. When considering romantic works, the first to come to mind are the great musical forms (operas, symphonic poems, sonatas, concerts, etc.), but the lighter, more intimate forms of expression (both instrumental and instrumental-vocal) also reflect the musical genius of composers. The present release is a showcase of Romantic Duets, presented by soprano Justyna Reczeniedi, mezzo-soprano Anna Radziejewska, and pianist Krzysztof Trzaskowski.
