In Poland, for the last two decades and particularly in recent years there has been a growing need for a reinterpretation of the peasant class and especially its culture. It is difficult, perhaps, to unambiguously ascribe Zygmunt Krauze's folkloristic output to intentional, notional harbingers of those re-evaluations, but it certainly became a powerful antithesis to the protectional "polishing" that peaked a quarter of a century earlier. In Krauze, an unconventional attitude is combined with an "immersion" (to use the composer's own word) in the sound environment, resulting in work that is fresh, original and - against the Polish background of its times - distinctive.
