Homage to Paderewski



From the Publisher

In 1942, Ignacy Jan Paderewski (1860-1941), the great Polish pianist and composer (and in 1919 prime minister of Poland for one year), was posthumously honoured with a deluxe edition for which many of his friends and pupils, such as Béla Bartók, Darius Milhaud, Bohuslav Martinu or Jaromír Weinberger, specially composed piano pieces. The limited edition then published by Boosey & Hawkes in New York has been out of print for a long time and is now newly printed.
