Mieczysław Karłowicz · Serenade for Strings
“In Mozart’s music I have discovered beauty on a scale I didn’t suspect,” Pyotr Tchaikovsky wrote to his patron Nadeshda von Meck. As a result of this admiration, we have received the well-known String Serenade no. 48 in C major, romantic to the core and full of genuine emotion. Gustav Holst, a Briton, also originally wrote his St.-Paul’s-Suite op. 29 for strings. The name goes back to St.-Paul’s Girls School in Hammersmith, London, where he was employed as Musical Director from 1905 to 1934, and it is said that he wrote the suite as a sign of gratitude after the school had furnished him with a sound-proof study. On the other hand, the Serenade op. 2 by Polish composer Mieczyslaw Karłowicz was inspired by folk music and exposes a luxuriant world of sounds.
