Recording Date: Mon 11 Dec 2000
Praeludium I per violino solo (4:10)
Zoltowski: Anagoge for Sarangi, Percussion and Organ
Composer: Maciej Zoltowski
Recording Date: Fri 10 Jun 1994
ANAGOGE was commissioned by the festival „Conversatorium“ in Legnica, and was first performed there in 1995. I have used an Indian rubbed string instrument – sarangi – together with the big organ of the Evangelic church in Legnica and percussion (one player). The spatial disposition requires the sarangi player to play in the frontal part of a church, in the front of public, the organ and percussion are playing from behind. The title is a notion taken from neoplatonic philosophy. It means the way up, going up in spiritual development. The motto is "?ry to raise what is divine in you to that, what is divine in the Universe" – the sentence said by the great philosopher ???t???? on his death bed. 13’

Zoltowski: Thang-ka
Composer: Maciej Zoltowski
Recording Date: Tue 28 Jun 1994
Thang-ka was written during the IV International Computer Music Workshops in Warsaw in 1994. All sound material was prepared from recordings – samples of two instruments: Indian esraj and Mongolian khuucir. Thang-ka is a name for Buddhist icon in tantric Buddhist tradition in Tibet. Each element of these paintings have a symbolical meaning, the material on which they are painted (usually silk), colours, proportions taken from a strict canon, even the act of unrolling and rolling back the icon (act of unfolding and folding the Universe). I tried to use the symbolical proportions and other symbols in this piece. 10’20”

Zoltowski: Intermezzi per pianoforte
Composer: Maciej Zoltowski
Recording Date: Mon 11 Dec 2000
The idea of writing Intermezzi for piano emerged during my stay in Künstlerhaus Schloss Wiepersdorf in Germany. The atmosphere of this place had awaken two opposite feelings: lazy, as passing outside of time reflection and tempestuous, even importunate manifestation of activity. Such are these three pieces. The thing connecting them is their harmonic structure - one chord with its symmetrical transformation. The chord itself is at the same time object of perception and subject of happening action. Everything what "happens" in this music I tried to educe from dynamics characteristic of such an phenomenon, which the chord is. Author's interference resolved itself into careful listening. 8’
