In the late 1970s Zygmunt Krauze decided to abandon the rules of unitary form and yield to intuitive expression.

Constant mood changes and great emotional load are characteristic features of his music of that time. The form of a work consists of series of segments. Each segment is homogenous. The impact of the unitary form can be noticed in those segments, which create the form.

The composer has tried this solution out in such works as: Piano Concerto No. 1 (1976) and Piano Concerto No. 2 (1996), Symphonie parisienne (1986), Violin Concerto (1980), Piano Quintet (1993), Adieu (2001).
