Henryk Melcer-Szczawiński

Henryk Melcer-Szczawiński (21 September 1869 – 18 April 1928) was a Polish composer, pianist, conductor, and teacher.


His works include two piano concertos, one in E minor (1892-4) and one in C minor (1898); a violin sonata (1907),[1] and a piano trio in G minor (probably written 1892-4); a tragedy "Protesilas i Laodamia" (1902, libretto by S. Wyspiański), and a Symphony in C minor.


Both piano concertos were recorded in the past on Olympia and on Muza, and in 2007 on Hyperion. The Violin Sonata for Violine in G major, the Dumka for Violin and Piano and the Piano Trio, Op. 2 were recorded by the Warsaw Trio for the AP label.
