TWARDOWSKI, R.: Violin Concerto / Spanish Fantasia / Serenade / Niggunim / Capriccio in Blue (Augustyn, Toruń Symphony, Smolij)

Born in Vilnius and a student of Nadia Boulanger, Romauld Twardowski writes music which blends tradition and modernity. His writing for strings is consistently masterful, whether in the lyricism and capricious rhythms of Serenade for string orchestra, or the ‘new simplicity’ of his Violin Concerto. Fantazja hiszpanska (‘Spanish Fantasia’) shows how deeply the composer absorbed flamenco music during a visit to Spain, while Niggunim explores authentic Hassidic Jewish melodies. Capriccio in Blue is a delightful and wholly original salute to George Gershwin.
