Abstract/Description: This treatise presents an annotated list and description of works for chamber ensemble for three instruments with piano, written between 1950 and 2000 by Polish composers. The purpose of this compilation is to familiarize musicians with these pieces, thereby promoting both their study and performance.The composers are presented in alphabetical order. A short biography of each composer precedes annotations of her/his works in chronological order. Each annotation consists of a description of the composition, with special focus on the style and level of pianistic difficulty. The author of this treatise has researched both the biographies and the annotations in an attempt to present these individual compositions within the broader context of Polish musical culture in the second half on the twentieth century along with the main stylistic trends and their development during this fifty-year period. Thorough research was necessary to collect the materials, mostly musical scores published in Poland and other countries. Many are available only as the composers' manuscripts at various locations, such as the Polish Composers' Union, The Warsaw Autumn International Ferstival of Contemporary Music and other sources, or directly from the composers themselves. Although this compilation attempts to be as complete as possible, it is obvious that not all works written in this period could be annotated due to lack of information (e.g., students' compositions).
