Description

The presented album is an encounter of two different creative individualities personified by Zygmunt Noskowski and Cesar Franck. We will listen to their sonatas, both written for violin and piano, in parallel keys (differing only in mode). These works were created at a similar time; they are only 15 years apart. However, despite so many similarities, these are two completely different musical worlds. The awareness of both among music lovers is also radically different: Noskowski's work is little known even among Polish listeners, whereas Franck's composition has been performed almost continuously since the moment it was published, also in arrangements.

The Sonata in A Minor for violin and piano by Noskowski is kept in a classical convention of the sonata-allegro form. However, one can hear therein a wide, narrative breath of musical phrases, which listeners know from the composer's symphonic output. On the other hand, Franck's piece, the Sonata in A Major for violin and piano, presents a different convention these are wandering motifs penetrating the musical tissue of the entire piece and, above all, deep emotional saturation dominating the character of the work. So different and yet somehow similar works grow out of the spirit of their era open to new trends but still sometimes focused on the past.

The violin is played by Adam Wagner, a well-known and respected Polish violinist with a successful stage career. He is accompanied by Dariusz Noras, a chamber pianist whose interpretations have already been appreciated many times, both in Poland and abroad.
