After the album released in 2004, is a continuation of recording the best works of Witold Lutoslawski in Super Audio format. Lutosławski is the most important Polish composer next to Chopin and Szymanowski. He belongs to a small group of the 20th century composers representing unique and personal image. He did not succumb to any fashionable trends, and he did not participate in any avant-garde revolutions .The attitude of constructing and building was dearer to him that of demolishing and contradicting. This attitude is a common reference for the three album works. In these pieces the composer is more open to the tradition than anywhere else. By assimilating that tradition , Lutosławki has not lost his sovereignty and rather brought back the sense of synthesis, which has frequently been abused.
The album released for the Jubilee of 100th birth of the composer, was recorded with distinguished performers, soloists - English artist, considered one of the greatest cellists of our time Robert Cohen, who plays an instrument made of 1723 years by David Tecchlera and outstanding pianist Ewa Pobłocka. The soloists accompanied by the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Jerzy Maksymiuk.
