One of the most prominent Polish composers of all time, Witold Lutoslawski had his first success in 1939 with the premiere of 'Symphonic Variations'. The war years hampered his career as he played Warsaw coffee houses along with Andrzej Panufnik and arranged some 200 pieces for two pianos.

The main work on this release, the Piano Sonata, remained unpublished during the composerís lifetime. It was eventually published in 2004 and subsequently entered the repertoire of a number of leading pianists. The Sonata for piano is an efficiently crafted work, with numerous French influences being evident, particularly Ravel, although enough phrases also appear that are distant echoes of Rachmaninovís expanded textures.
