Following on from Bice Horszowski Costa’s previous book Remembrances of Mieczyslaw Horszowski, which drew a comprehensive picture of the long and intense life of the great pianist, Dynamic are pleased to be able to present another rare book titled Letters and postcards of Janina Roza Horszowska.

The collection of picture postcards has been retrieved after decades of being hidden away in a garage in Nice. The letters and postcards are from Miecio’s mother Janina which she sent home to her husband almost daily between 1900 and 1904.

There are over 130 postcards which provide a striking overview of the beginning of the last century and a unique glance at the musical development of a child-prodigy from a mother’s perspective.

The book includes a CD featuring recordings of some of the works mentioned in the letters and postcards. The recordings have never been recorded on CD before.

Also included are a small biographical glossary, an updated discography, and bibliography.
