Szymanowski: #101

About this playlist

Szymanowski’s music is one of the absolute highlights of early modernism. His early works were still influenced by the music of Richard Strauss, but later onwards he melted the late romantic idiom with French impressionism, leading to an authentic synthesis of two very different worlds. In his later years, he strove for a Polish style that would unite Polish folk songs with contemporary music.
