For their debut album together, violinist Bomsori Kim and pianist Rafał Blechacz present music from France and Poland. Fauré's Sonata looks forward to the Impressionism of Debussy and his own Sonata, a late work. "It contains so many emotions and a whole range of characters," says Blechacz of Szymanowski's Sonata. The album concludes with a Nocturne by Chopin, a Polish composer who settled in France, bringing together the two cultures.
