The important Polish composer Marian Sawa wrote a distinguished body of music and was the recipent of numerous awards. Many of his violin works remained undiscovered untill 2012, and they embody musical idioms ranging from the experimental sounds of the 1960s to the modal harmonies of the 21st century. Cohesive and contrapunctal, often intricate and intimate, Sawa’s music for violin uses innovative sound techniques and is vitty and virtuosic. It is performed on this recording by the violinist to whom many of the works were deditated.

The final quarter of the seventeenth century represents a golden age for virtuosic solo violin music. The Southern German & Austrian region was especially productive and transalpine string playing intermingled and was influenced by musicians at the Italian court. It was indeed here that violin virtuosi not only emerged as artists but increasing focus was also placed on instruments and bows of the time, which in turn lead to a rapid development in violin making. Virtuosic violin playing was omnipresent in Europe at this time, found in the church, opera & public chambers. The composers, often violinists themselves, attempted to portray their finest artistry through their fascination of the melodic and technical capabilities of the instrument. The simple harmonic structure of variations and ostinato forms (found typically in the chaconne and passacaglia) provided players with ideal opportunities to demonstrate their skill and the technical possibilities of the violin.
