By Maria Szwajger-Kulakowska and Piotr Salajczyk. By Julisz Zarebski. Classical. CD. Dux Records #DUX1181-4. Published by Dux Records (NX.DUX1181-4).

Julius Zarebski gained recognition with his masterpiece the quintet for piano and strings that he completed in 1885. He had just enough time to finish it in Brussels before he died when he was 32 years old. Born four years after Chopin died, Julius Zarebski was trained in Vienna where he studied the work of Mozart, Beethoven, and especially Brahms. His writing reflects the influences of these composers, but even more so the influence of his idol- Liszt. Under the anecdotal, benign appearance of his brief piano works, one of the most singular geniuses of Romanticism weaves a sumptuous work, revolutionary in its own way more by discourse than by harmony. Behind these virtuosic pieces, Zarebski invents a new pianistic language that would herald in the age of Szymanowski. This release contains his complete extant works.
