FELIX NOWOWIEJSKI (1877-1946): 25 Polish Folk Songs from Warmja, Op. 21/8.
Catalogue Number: 08K065
Description: Originally inspired by the 1920 plebicite in the German-controlled province of Warmia, which Polish-speakers lost, Nowowiejski produced several carefully researched and lovingly crafted sets of Warmian folk songs for both choir and, here (in 1935) for voice and piano. Intended to help preserve the character and history of Warmian folk culture, they live on for us as beautifully realized little crystals of preserved musical history. Polish-English texts. Ewa Alchimowicz-Wójcik (soprano), Lucyna Zolnierek (piano).
