Catalogue Number: 07K080
Label: Acte Préalable
Description: The very early sonata (1918) combines Polish folk musical references with an ever-present lyricism and a Gallic clarity and grace. Written for and premiere by Szigeti, the 1930 5 Pieces are in the lithe, neo-classical style of Tansman's maturity while the late (1963) Fantaisie, dedicated to André Gertler, is a six-movement suite in neo-baroque form but neo-classical style. Barbara Trojanowska (violin), Elzbieta Tyszecka (piano).
