Description: Ekier, known primarily for his editions of Chopin’s music, and Szymanowski were united by a fascination with Chopin’s music, as well as inspiration from folk music, particularly folk music from the southern highlands, a thread which runs through most of the pieces in this recital split almost equally between the two composers. Wojciech Pyrć (piano).
