Maria Szymanowska, born in Warsaw in 1789, earned an international reputation as a composer-virtuoso and played for the Royal Philharmonic Society in London in 1824. Her brilliant miniatures, the famous Nocturne in B flat among them, paved the way for Chopin’s compositions.

The finale of Polish Music Day also includes Górecki’s Pożegnanie and Eugeniusz Knapik’s hauntingly beautiful Partita.
