Splendid release March 1 2011
By Gerhard P. Knapp - Published on
Verified Purchase
Antoni Wit and his great Warsaw Philharmonic are captured in brilliant audio and video with a 2009 live concert at Warsaw Philharmonic Hall, and they are in splendid form indeed. Szymanowski's music with its echoes of over-ripe romanticism and its bold forays into musical impressionism and expressionism and jazzy avant-garde is not too easy to bring off, but these performances are top-notch. The enigmatic Symphony No. 3 ("Song of the Night" - no reference to Mahler's No. 7) for tenor and chorus, somewhat reminiscent of Scriabin, but based on two medieval Persian poems, has kept me spellbound from beginning to end. The popular Fourth Symphony ("Concertante") is formally more stringent and might be called a piano concerto. Soloist Jan Krzysztof Broja shines with a fireworks display of virtuosity, and Wit, together with his obviously inspired musicians, is with him bar by bar. Congratulations to the artists and their outstanding audio-visual team on this important release.
