NEW ON CD: Zal – The Music of Miłosz Magin

Some time ago, together with our soloists Lucas Debargue and Gidon Kremer we were discovering and recording the music of Miłosz Magin. Finally, today this CD has been released on Sony Classical.
CD titled “Żal” presents composer’s rhapsodic Piano Concerto, the world premiere of the Violin Concerto and intense, prayerful “Stabat mater” for strings and timpani among other works.
We invite everyone to listen to this music and get to know more about wonderful composer Miłosz Magin and his works!
