Janusz Wawrowski
Jose Gallardo

An album of rarely-performed pieces for violin and piano by Ravel, Ysaye, Lutosławski and Szymanowski in fresh, captivating interpretations by two artists from different cultures – Slavic sensitivity of Janusz Wawrowski combined with South American temperament José Gallardo and excellent technique makes this recording an unforgettable experience.

This album which marks the start of the cooperation between Janusz Wawrowski and Warner Classics Poland is named after all things mysterious and beautiful. Aurora, the Roman Goddess of Dawn, carries us into a stunning world full of colour, freshness and vigorous energy. Janusz Wawrowsi is accompanied by the Argentinian pianist José Gallardo, and the album takes us on a diverse journey.

Inspired by mythology and magic, Karol Szymanowski’s Mythes stimulate imagination and encourage reflection on the matter of beauty. Other album pieces explore the mysteries of desire (The Fountains of Aretuza), self-love (Narcissus), or even fear of hideousness and abandonment (Dryads and Pan) Symbolism and myths also characterize Eugène Ysaÿe’s Sonata for violin No. 5. Aurora, the first part of this sonata, is a masterly piece requiring extreme skills and musical sensitivity from the violinist. It is thus rarely recorded and almost never played live. Here, the Dawn Goddess’s dare is tempting and Wawrowski’s performance utterly charming. The breathtaking Ravel sonata surprises us with blues and energizing perpetuum mobile, while Lutosławski’s subito shows fierceness and dynamism of the modern world. “Aurora” has already received enthusiastic reviews in the international press – The Strad, Strings, Pizzicato and Huffington Post
