More Info:

The Cracow Harp Quintet was founded in 2019; it con-sists of an unusual set of instruments: flute, harp, and a string trio. As the only such professional chamber ensemble in Poland, it promotes music that has been forgotten or has not been published yet. Thanks to the joint initiative, the members of the ensemble share many years of experience of concerts, festivals, and competitions in Poland and abroad. The album Hommage is a tribute to the output of the composers associated with the Quintette Instrumental de Paris - a formation whose 100th anniversary of the foundation falls this year. The album will feature compositions by artists who were closely related to the ensemble, such as Jean Absil, Jacques Pillois, Aleksan der Tansman, and Jean-Yves Daniel-Lesur. The repertoire is distinguished by it's diverse nature: French Impressionism, medieval monody motifs, fasci-nation with the Far East culture as well as the 20th-cen-tury idiom of Polish music. The album will feature the world recording premiere of Jacques Pillois's suite 5 Haïkaï and the Polish recording premiere of Sonatina da camera by Aleksander Tansman.
