KARLOWICZ, M.: Symphonic Poems, Vol. 1 (Wit) - Stanislaw i Anna Oswiecimowie / Rapsodia litewska / Epizod na maskaradzie

Although he left the merest handful of compositions at his seemingly accidental death in an avalanche while skiing, Mieczysław Karłowicz ranks among the most important Polish composers of his generation. The final years of his brief career were taken up by a series of six symphonic poems, the third, fourth and sixth of which are included on this first disc of these works. Alternating between fervent affirmation and brooding melancholy, these impressive late-romantic works are notable for their colourful and imaginative orchestration and fresh and original harmony.
