"Lutosławski is generally regarded as the most significant Polish composer since Szymanowski, and possibly the greatest Polish composer since Chopin ... Since his death the assessment of Lutosławski's creative achievement has remained much as it was during his last years: he is now acknowledged as one of the major European composers of the 20th century."
