Sarton 026-2 (June 2017)
Two outstanding Polish musicians, Anna Maria Staśkiewicz and Bartosz Koziak, have prepared a program presenting the most interesting pieces written for rarely-heard duo: violin and cello. The album will be released with a support of the Polish Institute in Budapest and The Balassi Institute in Warsaw, among others. It features works by Witold Lutosławski as well as Zoltán Kodály, Bohuslav Martinů and Maurice Ravel that have been re-adapted by the artists. On June 29, the artists presented repertoire from the CD at the Budapest Music Center and one day later in Berlin.
