Born 1914 in Warsaw, Witold Malcuzynski can be regarded as one the greatest heirs of the Polish piano tradition inherited from Paderewski; he was also one of the greatest Chopin specialists, which is reflected in his discography and therefore in this ICON set. These recordings dedicated to the Romantic repertoire have been unavailable for decades.

Though the legacy of Paderewski looms large, Malcuzynski's own contribution to the Polish piano tradition was a significant one: his sparing approach to rubato and the precision of his phrasing have influenced the current generation of Polish pianists, such as Krystian Zimerman.
