You’ll get no argument from me regarding the disc’s title. This young quartet is devoted to these works, and presents them with real intensity and, indeed, joy in this, its first disc.

I daresay that those who have not followed the course of Polish music since the mid to late 1970s - when some composers began a ‘return to roots’ policy, and embraced highlands’ music and folkloric inspiration – will be unfamiliar with the three composers recorded in this disc. If that’s the case, then I think you’ll be in for a pleasant surprise.
