We are pleased to present to you an extraordinary project – a reissue of the archival recording of Ludwig van Beethoven’s complete symphonies performed by the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir with the soloists.
There have been many fine recordings of this opulent score, including Solti's (Decca), Previn's (Telarc), and the recent Askkenazy (Ondine), but if forced to choose a single recording I have no hesitation in picking this one.
Mieczysław Karłowicz was the first Polish composer whose orchestral works met the European standards. Their perfect and colourful instrumentation, modern form and rich musical content put them among the highest neo-Romantic symphonic achievements of the early 20th century.
The Biblical psalm starting with ‘Miserere mei, Deus...’ has been inspiration for many composers over the centuries. Many great musical works have been based on its deeply moving text. The new CD Accord album presents six of them, excellently performed by the Camerata Silesia.
It is therefore not enough to believe, one must also love – such is the lesson the fate of Jerusalem teaches us? a lesson Krzysztof Penderecki made the substance of his work.
The CD Accord album presents three concerts performed by the Polish violinist Daniel Stabrawa. The Krakow-born artist is one of the most interesting characters in the world of violin today.
The first album in a series to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the National Philharmonic in Warsaw (1901-2001).
