Mieczyslaw Surzynski 1866-1925, the son of an organist, teacher, and conductor and brother of three more organists, was the most prominent Polish composer of organ music in the Romantic era. The organ concerto, composed in 1904, was believed lost in a fire at the Warsaw Philharmonic in 1938, but was found in 1990. In 1902, he won First Prize in an organ competition in St. Petersburg for improvising on “O Holy God,” then published it in 1906 to become his best known work. The Sonata in d, among his more important works, also dates to ca. 1905. Jerzy Dziubinski plays the 1998 Hillebrand at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Warsaw with the Polish Radio Symphony, Jacek Rogala, conductor.
