Over many decades the enduring impression internationally was that between Fryderyk Chopin and Karol Szymanowski there had been no significant composers in Poland. However, when this country was not a state, it brought forth other highly talented musicians who stood the test of European comparison with flying colors. Two of them were closely acquainted personally through a teacher-pupil relationship and warm ties of friendship: Ignacy Jan Paderewski and Zygmunt Stojowski, and for some years now the compositions of the two have enjoyed new esteem. Paderewski's Sonata op. 13 may rightly claim a place side by side with famous works by Edvard Grieg, Johannes Brahms, and CĂ©sar Franck. Paderewski immediately demonstrates his command of the latest developments in the European art of music. The beginning of the first movement combines a piano accompaniment of stormy animation with a violin theme of sweeping breadth that on the one hand could have been taken from a symphony by Bruckner and on the other hand could represent a minor variant of the concluding apotheosis in Grieg's Piano Concerto. The violinist Wladyslaw GĂłrski offered Stojowski insights into his instrument's capabilities when the composer was a young man, and Stojowski's first violin sonata, a most highly effectively composed work, documents this expert tutelage.
