Toporowski Marek, harpsichord

booklet: Marek Toporowski (Polish, English)


A representative sample of Polish keyboard music of the end of the 18th and the very beginning of the 19th centuries. Bohdanowicz' dance-based compositions bristle with meticulous performance instructions which produce a wide range of expression while Elsner's rondosprefigure early Schubert. Records International
