This programme comprises three major 20th-century chamber works, all of them deeply rooted in the musical world of Central Europe.

The pieces by Janacek and Szymanowski are exactly contemporary. Composed respectively at the beginning and the end of the 20th century, Szymanowski's 'Mythes' and Lutoslawski's 'Partita' constitute two landmarks of Polish music.

"A strong, supple performance of Janacek's Violin Sonata heads this impressive recital. The playing is pungent, shot through with shafts of colour and with that citrus tang so typical of Janacek's mature voice."

Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph, 6 September 2003

“There is a spontaneous sense of fantasy in these performances, which brings out the quirky side of the Janácek, and similarly in some passages of the Partita, whilst the pianist Ewa Kupiec matches Isabelle Faust in drawing out the atmospheric beauties of Szymanowski’s Mythes...Isabelle Faust plays with rapt concentration, as compelling and imaginative in her way as Anne-Sophie Mutter in the orchestral version. An unusual disc which impressively displays the mastery of both players.” Edward Greenfield, Gramophone, Awards Issue, 2003
