Memories of Poland

Memories of Poland

Conversant in six languages and able to sing in 12, Bolek Zawadzki began his musical career studying at the Moniuszko Music School in Warsaw, Poland. He immigrated to the United States with his parents in 1957, settling in New York City. In this collection, Zawadzki sings Polish lullabies, love songs, and folk songs. He closes the recording with “Czerwone Maki Na Monte Cassino” (“Red Poppies on Monte Cassino”), a song about the heroism and sacrifice of Polish fighters at the battle of Monte Cassino in Italy during World War II. The liner notes provide the song lyrics in Polish.
