Review by JJ September 14, 2010 (4 of 6 found this review helpful)
Performance:   Sonics:    
On this remarkable SACD are to be found the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra N°1, dating from 1977, and the Concerto for Horn and Orchestra, from 2008. Early on, the violin was Penderecki’s instrument of choice: “I mainly compose music for strings. This element is omnipresent in my works. I even transcribe my orchestral pieces for string instruments. The violin is my priority. For me, the violin is sound, melodies, a style.” Directing the Sinfonietta Cracovia, the Polish conductor finds the perfect osmosis with his soloists. And their playing sparks our enthusiasm from the beginning to end of a musical discourse in which all is incontrovertible: phrasing, colors, accents, respiration. All here is emotion at its purest, and the result demands admiration. The exemplary sound is no less a part of the success of this recording, which one would be well-advised to listen to promptly. Here then is a great, a very great disc by Penderecki.
