Witold Lutosfawski started regular study of the piano at the age of six and the violin when he was thirteen. He did not become a concert violinist, but he was a concert pianist. Witold Maliszewski, professor at the Warsaw Conservatory, who deeply influenced the young Lutostawski's musical thought, gave him lessons in composition, after his future pupil had presented him with the Poem for piano, written at the age of fifteen. When he was seventeen he wrote, under his teacher's supervision, his Dance of the Chimera for piano, the first work of his to receive public performance. As with a series of other pieces, written since1922, when Lutostawski was only nine, the two compositions mentioned were destroyed in 1944 during the Warsaw rising. The flames spared, however, the Piano Sonata of 1934 and the two-piano Wariacje na temat Paganiniego (Variations on a Theme of Paganini) of 1941. The post-war years brought other works for piano, Melodie ludowe (Folk Melodies) in 1946 and Bukoliki (Bucolics) in 1952 and some pedagogical pieces. The piano, the role of which in Lutostawski's chamber and orchestral works was often important, only appeared as a solo instrument in the Piano Concerto of 1988, except for the Variations on a Theme of Paganini, a composition for piano and orchestra, after the two-piano Variations, one of the most popular works in the piano duo repertoire and one of the most frequently performed of Lutostawski's compositions.

When George Butterworth joined the army in 1914, his most recent works included the song cycle Six Songs from 'A Shropshire Lad' as well as the Rhapsody 'A Shropshire Lad', which he called 'an orchestral epilogue' to his settings of A. E. Housman's poems. The Rhapsody has since been described as 'one of the greatest of all English orchestral works' and when Butterworth left England to fight in the First World War, he was seen as one of the bright hopes of British music a hope that in August 1916 was extinguished in the trenches at the Somme.

Volume 3 in the series with the complete orchestral works of Ludwig van Beethoven is ready from the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and its music director since 1997, Thomas Dausgaard. The piano concertos are true gems of the classical canon, as Beethoven was an expert both in the art of writing for the orchestra and himself a master pianist. Russian pianist Boris Beresovsky (b.1969) is such a wizard. At the age of 21 he won the Gold Medal at the 1990 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. It is a privilege to hear how the combination Berezovsky and Dausgaard/SwCO really hit it of in this music. They are enjoying themselves, surprising each other, challenging and courteous at the same time. The sounding result speaks for itself.

Samuel Barber, one of the most prominent and popular American composers of the mid-20th century, wrote effectively in virtually every genre, including opera, ballet, vocal, choral, keyboard, chamber, and orchestral music. His music is notable for its warmly Romantic lyricism, memorable melodies, and essentially conservative harmonic style, all of which put him at odds with the prevailing modernist aesthetic of his time. Barber was a member of the first class at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. In 1928, the 17-year-old Gian Carlo Menotti came to study ……..

Zhu is exceptional among Chinese composers of his generation for his remarkable capacity to adapt himself to the changing political climate. After his studies in Moscow his brazenly Romantic music was criticized in China for its revisionist spirit and he stopped composing for a while. In the late 1960s he was swept along by the revolutionary ardour of the Maoists and began to compose choral cantatas on texts of Mao Zedong. By the end of the Cultural Revolution he had lost faith in his political music and in himself, but in the 1980s he embarked on an astonishing second career as an orchestral composer of in contemporary and even experimental inclination.
