Łukaszewski Marcin, piano

booklet: Marcin Łukaszewski (Polish, English)


One of Perkowski's teachers was Szymanowski and there is some of that composer's influence here. The "Sonata" is more influenced by post-Impressionist French composers although Perkowski's great Polish teacher also has a look-in. The "Easy Pieces" are bright and characteristic of their type, as are the set of four Polish dances. With no modernistic influences or tendencies, this should appeal to collectors of both French and Polish piano music of the 20th century. Records International Łukaszewski to pianista nietuzinkowy, poszukujący niebanalnego repertuaru (...) Okazał się przy tym wnikliwym i drobiazgowym badaczem, dołączając do swej płyty wyczerpujący i świetnie udokumentowany komentarz. Samo nagranie jest przejrzyste, a fortepian brzmi plastycznie. Paweł Bagnowski Ruch Muzyczny nr 23, 10 XI 2002
