Chant du printemps, Op 34 No 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Aleksander Zarzycki was born in Lwów (now Lviv, Ukraine), studied in Berlin and Paris, and settled in Warsaw. He was a co-founder and the first director of the Warsaw Musical Society as well as the choir conductor at St John’s Archcathedral where Paderewski’s remains are entombed in the crypt. French in flavour, the Chant du printemps is a typical morceau de salon. Following a programmatic-like introduction of springtime nymphs welcoming the listener on their harps, a beautiful melody reminiscent of Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words takes over.
