Polish Music Journal 5.2.02 - Labunski: Poland's Contribution to Music (2709 words)
The first half of the 18th century was characterized in Poland by the growth of secular music, the further development of instrumental music and the shifting of art patronage from the court to the wealthy magnates and landlords.
This period was marked by the development of symphonic music and produced several distinguished composers: W³adys³aw ¯eleñski (1839-1920) chiefly known as the author of the opera "Goplana," and of symphonic and chamber music.
[12] Their music is remarkable for its model character and unusual scales, derived from Polish folk music; by its fresh and vigorous rhythm; by its humor and healthy objectivism, all in keeping with the spirit of the new Poland, a spirit of action, optimism and self-reliance.
