The Polish Composers On Spotify

R.I.P. Mr. Lech Aleksander Kaczyńsk. Terrible news. I don't know his politics but Poland is a country I always admire. Krzysztof Kieślowski's The Decalogue is probably my favourite film, and aside from being the homeland of Chopin, Poland has also offered many other great composers from Szymanowski, Górecki to Penderecki.

Here's the Spotify playlist: The Polish Composers (508 tracks, 2.2 days) It consists of Polish composers works and sorted by composers alphabetically. I didn't want to put Chopin here as I have done a Chopin playlist before, but Chopin is still everywhere in this playlist, Godowsky's Chopin arrangements, Josef Hofmann, and some other Polish composer-pianist plays Chopin, including Polański's Pianist Władysław Szpilman playing the A minor Mazurka. At the end there's two compilations: Polish Chamber Music and The Polish Heart.

May the Polish people find the strength in faith and all the great art that they created to get through this tragedy.
