Krzysztof Meyer: Complete Works for Cello and Piano

Krzysztof Meyer, born in Kraków in 1943 and a student of Penderecki, Lutosławski and Nadia Boulanger, is one of the leading Polish composers of the day. His music marries a powerful sense of drama with a long-breathed lyricism in a largely tonal framework, placing him downstream from Shostakovich, who was a friend and supporter of the young composer. Of his two cello sonatas (1983 and 2004) and Canzona (1981), Meyer writes, 'I wanted the melody to be predominant — not a post-Romantic cantilena but absolutely contemporary. And the cello, like no other instrument, is perfect for that'.
