Poland’s proudest dance form, the Polonaise, found its definitive expression in the hands of Chopin. An equally distinctive voice emerged one hundred years later in the works of the prodigiously gifted Grażyna Bacewicz. Her first piano quintet is one of Poland’s greatest pieces of chamber music.  Poland’s rising star Lucas Krupinski locks hands with the boys of the Orava String Quartet, aptly named after their family’s Polish origins.
