The artists presented on this release - Jan Ekier and Karol Szymanowski - were united by a fascination with Chopin's music, as well as inspiration from folk music, particularly the highlander folklore. Szymanowski's influence on the entirety of the Polish music was not to be overestimated and it also left it's mark on the artistic sensitivity of young Ekier. In the '30s, the composer was appreciated by critics and audiences alike. He also occupies a particular place on the artistic path of a young pianist, Wojciech Pyrc, a graduate of the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music, and a laureate of numerous Polish and international competitions. On this release, he interprets piano miniatures by Ekier, as well as Szymanowski's works, including the daunting and rarely performed Fantasy in C major, Op. 14.
