Danuta Gwizdalanka's 'One Hundred Years of Polish Music History' is a fascinating journey through the last hundred years in Polish musical culture. In this book, written in a vivid and highly expressive style, the author highlights the most important historical events that influenced the work of Polish composers from 1918 to 2018.
She leads the reader through the meanders of aesthetic currents, points out stylistic contexts and discusses compositions, evoking often forgotten facts and anecdotes. She both peruses the past and looks to the musical future. And she begins her account with the piano, an instrument inextricably associated with Poland.
