This CD commemorates the fact that this great unknown romantic master died one hundred years ago. The Polish conductor, teacher and composer Noskowski was a leading figure in the impressive Polish music scene around 1900, working alongside such people as Paderewski, Scharwenka, and Moszkowski. These works show that also as a composer, he could measure up to his contemporaries!
Morskie Oko is not unfamiliar. From a very mysterious beginning the music rises to a most beautiful climax depicting the famous cliff in Poland -with this name. The symphony is traditional in style blending the big romantic tradition from Schumann, Brahms with a tinge of Polish folk music. The second movement is an experience beyond most. A truly romantic slow movement that will bring tears to all romantic eyes.
