Musical past

Lutosławski was not indifferent to tradition and treated it with due respect – especially when it came to Bach, Chopin, Beethoven, Haydn and Debussy. Without this relationship, it would have been impossible for him to lay the foundations of his oeuvre: their music, as the composer stated, enlivened his imagination.
