Preface, Editorial Note, Comments, Keys: Polish & English
Violinist Jolanta Sosnowska deserves highest recognition and endorsement for bringing to concert life violin works of Marian Sawa. Compelling creativity of Sawa‘s, is abundant in variety of styles, forms and genres. Clearly outlined, individual idiom of the composer, marked with excellent sentiment of the natural violin emphasizes its sonoristic capabilities, validating highest criteron of the composers‘ creation. I am convinced that these newly discovered violin works will experience their true renaissance.

Sawa‘s music should become current prevailing violin repertory. It is phenomenally beautiful, ingenious in its simplicity and emotionally moving. If you are exploring new violin literature, extraordinary ideas, melodic originality, perfect harmony and style do not hesitate – you have found what you were looking for! My highest recommendations!
Prof. Marcin Baranowski
The Ignacy Jan Paderewski Academy of Music, Poznań
Sawa‘s music succeeds in exuding a pleasant atmosphere of both strength and tenderness. It flows completely naturally, without undue pathos, and manages to captivate the listener through its rich tapestry of figurative language, creative ideas and use of color. The challenges a violinist faces in bringing these melodies to life is more than worthwhile!

What a true pleasure discovering the beautiful music of Marian Sawa! These works are compelling and extremely moving.
