Two masterpieces of violin literature - a concerto by Wieniawski (No. 2) and by Sibelius - are dear to the heart of every lover of this instrument.
Solo concert with orchestra
The CD Accord album with Chopin's piano concertos is a unique item on the long list of Chopin Year releases. The performers, A. Rubinstein and M. Argerich - great names known to every music lover - rarely appear on Polish albums.
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 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).
Another value of the record is the top-quality performance by Andrzej Budejko, a prizewinner at the bassoon competition in Vercelli and an experienced instrumentalist. The Amadeus Orchestra under Agnieszka Duczmal proves once again its position of a leading Polish chamber ensemble.
Another interpretation of Chopin's concertos; well timed for the Chopin Year.
Three Polish piano concertos composed in the second part of the last century, three large-scale important works.
