The Cracow Harp Quintet, founded in 2019, consists of an unusual set of instruments: harp, flute and a string trio. As the only such professional chamber ensemble in Poland, it promotes music that has been forgotten or has not been published yet. Thanks to the joint initiative, the members of the ensemble share many years of experience of concerts, festivals and competitions in Poland and abroad.

The album “Hommage” is a tribute to the output of the composers associated with the Quintette Instrumental de Paris – a formation whose 100th anniversary of the foundation falls this year. The album features compositions by artists closely related to them, such as Jean Absil, Jacques Pillois, Jean-Yves Daniel-Lesur and Alexander Tansman. The repertoire is distinguished by its diverse character: French Impressionism, medieval monody motifs, fascination with the Far East culture as well as the 20th-century idiom of Polish music.

The album also includes the world recording premiere of the suite 5 Haïkaï by Pillois and the first Polish recording of the Sonatina da camera by Alexandre Tansman.
