Our Top Ten Polish Composers:

1. Szymanowski
2. Chopin
3. Lutosławski
4. Penderecki
5. Bacewicz
6. Karłowicz
7. Górecki, H.
8. Nowowiejski
9. Kaper
9. Skrowaczewski

I'm surprised that Szymanowski beat Chopin, and the margin of victory was not close.

We will start in with the works of Polish composers later today.

Chopin has always had his detractors, nothing new here.

What surprises me is the high position of Mrs. Bacewicz. Indeed we have now 2 or 3 available recordings of most of her major works. Until the 1990s it was not easy at all to listen to this composer.

My 3 favourites in this final round (Szymanowski, Penderecki and Bacewicz) did pretty good and I`m very excited for the next phase. I think this edition might be my favourite one yet. 🍻
