    I’ve got a very beautiful disc, entitled “ The Polish school of piano “ with works of her.
    Splendidly Romantic. I think that her works might to be more known.

    First time I hear about her....I guess it's another "Naxos Composer," but unfortunately in her case, even Naxos does not have any recording!

    Well I heard her Notturno Murmure on a CD that came with a complete set of Chopin and Field Nocturnes, the CD contained a lot of contemporary (to Chopin) nocturnes, many good, but when I compare all the nocturnes in this 4CD set I think that Szymanowska's nocturne is one of the five best on the set. I don't have a thing for "Naxos Composers" and honestly thought Maria was well known but only within the "piano-elite" (I listen mainly to Wind- & orchestral so it wouldn't had surprised me if I didn't know some semi-legendary piano-composer).
