• New CD Appreciation (Krauze/Bôłt)

Krauze-1The Polish independent CD label, Bôłt Records, is one of the most inventive both inside and outside Poland.  Not only has it reissued recordings of key experimental works from the 1960s and 1970s but it has also given recording opportunities to current composers and performers to revisit such pieces.  One of the composers on whom Bôłt has focused is Zygmunt Krauze, five years younger than Penderecki and Górecki and just as distinctive a figure.  This CD, for which I wrote a short appreciation of Krauze’s music, presents archive recordings of four works from 1975-80, a significant period in Polish musical and cultural life.

Here’s the link to my appreciation for this new Krauze CDor you can scroll the CD NOTES tab above.
