Wojciech Kilar's chamber music plays a secondary role in the composer's output. ''Quintet for Woodwind Instruments'', written in 1952 by the then twenty-year-old composer, is one of only a few such pieces. Its style is neoclassical and the melody and harmony, full of charm, with a few archaisms and folk elements.

Sonatina for Flute and Piano (1951), 10'

Cat. no: 9840

''Sonatina'' is a less known work by Kilar - the composer of mainly vocal-instrumental works (Exodus, Angelus) as well as film music. It was written as early as during the composer's studies in 1951 and for about thirty years the manuscript was kept - and most probably would still have been kept - at the bottom of a drawer, had it not been it not for the inquiring mind of Grzegorz Olkiewicz - the well-known Polish flautist.
