About the album

Changes in Szymanowski’s style and aesthetic attitude are distinctly reflected in his rich legacy of beautifully crafted vocal works, embracing songs with piano or orchestral accompaniment, and written as single compositions or cycles. Starting within the tradition of the Romantic Lied, Szymanowski went on to shape his individual idiom with songs inspired by the exoticism of the Orient in his middle period, and—towards the end of his life—performed a spectacular about-turn leading to a stylization of authentic folklore. Impulses stimulating his creative imagination came from various sources, as Szymanowski continued to work under the influence of general philosophical ideas and particular literary works. Poetry frequently became the means of communication that supplemented his musical expression, with poetical texts forming the basis of musical works and revealing aesthetic tastes of the composer, his system of values and his artistic motivations. An examination of the poetic motifs of the songs thus discloses numerous filiations between the musical style and cultural backdrop of the period in which Szymanowski’s creative personality took shape. Szymanowski’s first creative period (1900-1914) saw his artistic maturation and assimilation of the existing repertory of stylistic norms, and is usually discussed in terms of the influence of late Romantic music, especially that of Wagner and Strauss. At the same time, this classification stimulates a variety of evaluations, ranging from charges of cosmopolitanism and the “betrayal of native ideals,” formulated at the beginning of the century, to the acceptance of attempts by the Young Poland movement to “catch up with Europe.” Studies of the songs, however, shift the emphasis to connections with literary currents of the period, making it possible to perceive the composer not so much as a Romantic attached to the ideals of German music of the past, but as a modernist expressing a new vision of the world......
