Grażyna Bacewicz - The Warsaw Piano Quintet - Piano Quintets album
The Warsaw Quintet is a revival of the ensemble founded by "The Pianist" Wladyslaw Szpilman. Today's ensemble is made up of pianist Krzysztof Jablonski, Konstantly Andrzej Kulka, Krzysztof Bakowski, Stefan Kamasa, and Rafal Kwiatkowski, some of whom were students of the original quintet's members. To carry on the legacy of that original group, the quintet has recorded two works that it used to play: quintets by Juliusz Zarebski and Grazyna Bacewicz. The Bacewicz is only slightly more well known than the Zarebski. It is a basically tonal work, but the way dissonances and changing harmonies are used to augment the emotion, plus clean lines, mark this quintet as unmistakably twentieth century. She does stick to sonata-movement forms, and her textures tend to be more unified between all the instruments than Zarebski's.
Bacewicz; Zarebski Piano Quintets. Full-blooded performances of two highly contrasted Polish quintets. View record and artist details. Record and Artist Details. Born half a century later, Grazyna Bacewicz (1909-69) achieved fame as a violinist and composer though again her music is not as widely known as it deserves. The first of her two piano quintets (1952) is in the lively folk-derived style required of Polish composers by the regime of the day. Bacewicz made a virtue of this restriction, balancing neo-romantic warmth with classical litheness.

Grazyna Bacewicz (1909-1969) was trained both as a violinist, a pianist and a composer and she was the first Polish female composer to achieve national and international recognition (Johanna Bruzdowicz, the Pavane discmate, followed suit). She studied composition with Kazimierz Sikorski in Warsaw and Nadia Boulanger in Paris. Her 1952 piano Quintet is a fine work, alternating moments of intense lyricism and great sonic refinement, and passages of Bartokian vigor.
