Moniuszko, Stanislaw | Zarebski, Juliusz

Plawner Quintet




Stanislaw Moniuszko (1819-1872):
String Quartet No. 1 in D minor 
String Quartet No. 2 in F major;

Juliusz Zarebski (1854-1885):
Piano Quintet op. 34


While the music world is getting ready for next year’s 250th anniversary of
Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth, this year’s bicentennial of the birth of the
Polish national composer Stanisław Moniuszko has gone practically unnoticed
outside Poland. For this reason, this new recording of his two string
quartets is all the more welcome. The composer who would become the
celebrated master of the operas Halka and The Haunted Manor wrote these
quartets during or shortly after his Berlin study years and in a style
continuing to draw on the vocabulary of classical models. At the same time,
the twenty-year-old student displays a sense of humor, melodicism, and
chamber finesse that not only make for a genuinely rewarding listening
experience but also are worth hearing again and again. A »late« creation by
Moniuszko’s young fellow Pole Juliusz Zarębski is being presented here
together with the quartets. At the end of his life this favorite pupil and
confidant of Franz Liszt wrote an absolutely »avant-garde« piano quintet
that might have launched a bold and daring oeuvre but ended up serving as a
farewell: when this virtuoso pianist and composer delighting in experiment
died in 1885, he was a mere thirty-one years old.
