The thrilling contrasts in a composer’s oeuvre are presented by Marie Radauer-Plank (violin) and Henrike Brüggen (piano) on their first GENUIN release. The two artists bring the world of the great Karol Szymanowski, whose death anniversary will be commemorated on March 29, 2017, to life before our ears. His music reflects the spirit of his time while drawing inspiration from ancient sources. It derives its power from the traditions of his homeland, but remains universal. And all of this can be heard in the playing of the two young, international prize-winning musicians: sophisticated yet down-to-earth, incredibly sensual yet clearly structured – a true discovery!
