Szymanowski’s songs contain some of his most highly scented music. In these always beautiful settings – including poetry by Dehmel, Joyce and Iwaszkiewicz – the line between tortured Expressionism and exquisite Impressionism often blurs. Barainsky’s singing, within a narrow tonal range, is attractive and expressive. Jan Smaczny
