Editorial Review:

Product Description:
Following the resounding success of Jonathan Plowright's 2010 Hommage à Chopin, the acclaimed British pianist becomes the first artist to record the album of works written and published in homage to one of the early twentieth century's most fascinating figures - Polish pianist, composer and politician Ignacy Jan Paderewski. Of the twenty-two works on this recording, from composers including Bartók, Martinu and Milhaud, sixteen were included in the memorial piano album Homage to Paderewski published by Boosey & Hawkes in New York in 1942. A further six pieces written for Paderewski also feature, including a Mazurka for two pianos by Britten originally intended for the volume (Britten misunderstood the commission, which specified solo piano), for which Plowright is joined by Aaron Shorr. These diverse works are performed with flair and dedication.
