“Of all the Polish violin repertoire, the works of Henryk Wieniawski are the best known, both in his native Poland and abroad. His two violin concertos and various works for violin and piano are performed all over the world. The International Henryk Wieniawski Competition in Poznan (similar to the Chopin Competition in Warsaw) is an internationally acclaimed competition. I find Karol Szymanowski one of the most versatile Polish composers. This CD is intended to bring home the message that this music must not be forgotten. May this release be a token of my gratitude to all the composers whose highly interesting and beautiful works are to be heard on this release.” – Piotr Plawner

Piotr Plawner is among the most creative and talented violinists of his generation. “This young man is quite phenomenal, a genius on the violin. His style is fascinating down to the last nuance. Every phrase is well thought out in terms of interpretation; every aspect is worthy of superlatives,” commented the Stuttgarter Zeitung. “Plawner is clearly an outstanding prospect,” was the verdict of The Times, and Lord Yehudi Menuhin described him as a violinist of “phenomenal ability”. Piotr Plawner plays a violin made by Tommaso Balestrieri.
