The two distant worlds of contemporary jazz and Polish romanticism paradoxically form a completely new and fascinating quality.

Kasia Pietrzko and Maciej Kadziela present, on this new release from The Fryderyk Chopin Institute (NIFC), the surrealist vision of the Polish Romantic, Cyprian Kamil Norwid. A vision that links his times to our own. This new CD features arrangements by Pietrzko and Kadziela to verse read by Andrzej Chyra, and continues a fine tradition of combining jazz with poetry, which in Europe stretches back to the 1950s. Their arrangements foster natural reflection, a slowing of the narrative that enhances the resonance of the verse. It is an approach that is favoured by Andrzej Chyra's unhurried recitation, restrained in its expression and dwelling on key phrases.

Norwid's poetry represents Polish romanticism. It is highly personal, ahead of its time in both content and form, but also strongly rooted in the history of the Polish emigre community in Paris, of which Chopin was one of the pillars. Nowadays, we rarely turn to Norwid's verse. And yet the questions he poses, the visions he spreads out before us, the problems he ponders are relevant to our generation too.
