‘[…] this book counterpoints verbal texts with music, enhanced with period maps and illustrations and also contemporary photographs of folk musicians and singers. Its subject matter is extremely important for our interpretation of the music of Chopin. It offers admirable assistance with understanding the composer’s inspirations, expanding the body of arguments to embrace a distinct indication, including musical evidence, of its folk – and by extension national – origins. Thus it forms an important complement to the subject literature, in both Chopin studies and ethnomusicology, which had previously been lacking such an approach.’

Assoc. Prof. Zbigniew J. Przerembski

‘The extensive discussions and reflections of the group of authors, the attractive presentation and the careful selection of works […] artistically interesting, excellently performed and with specific relations to the output of Chopin, comprise a publication that merits the highest appraisal […].’

Prof. Ludwik Bielawski
