Starting with the music of Chopin she investigates the works of the famous pianist, and Prime Minister of Poland, Paderewski and the early 20th century unique compositional voice of Szymanowski. Alongside these well-known names she introduces two 20th century works, the beautiful and delicate work of UK-based Roxanna Panufnik and the second piano sonata of Grazyna Bacewicz who described her own music as lyrical and aggressive.
