As a young man, Karol Szymanowski looked set for a rosy future. In his early twenties, he fell in with a group of well-connected fellow Poles with a generous musical patron, who enabled them to publish their music and put on public concerts of their own works. Donald Macleod introduces some of Szymanowski's earliest works, from a period when he looked towards Germany for musical inspiration.
