Novae Sonatae Rosarii (Polish: New Rosary Sonatas) is a cyclical work composed with the violinist Jolanta Sosnowska in mind, consisting of twenty-one pieces-miniatures. The length of individual compositions varies from a few to several minutes. It is the only work, so far, in the history of violin literature that requires performance on nineteen different instruments, as well as the only 21-movement programatic work written for the violin in the last few hundred years.
