Description: These attractive, readily accessible works were written in the past three years, and represent valuable additions to the chamber repertoire. Smolska's idiom is predominantly tonal, in the mainstream 20th century sense, though some modern techniques and a fondness for unexpected, brusque sforzati and harsh dissonances serve to lend the music a certain toughness and truculence. Strong contrasts in dynamics and the opposition of consonant and dissonant harmony are features of her style, as is rhythmic restlessness and unpredictability. Textures are invariably clear and uncluttered, so that the musical argument, frequently taking the form of disputative interactions between the instruments, is precisely etched into the musical fabric. Ewelina Zawiślak (flutes), Agnieszka Kołodziej, Małgorzata Smyczyńska-Szulc (cello), Agnieszka Przybylska (piano).
