Description: Melcer never wrote anything for solo piano in a large form - only what we have here, probably much of it designed for his own use. The level of virtuosity is high, the use of Polish folk styles inventive and original and the harmonies often much more adventurous than most of his fellow Polish pianist-composers before Szymanowski. Matti Askainen (piano).
