Notes & Reviews:

This 4-CD set contains all the Szymanowski recordings that Sir Simon Rattle made for EMI classics, including some of the composer's best known works - the two violin concertos, 'The Song of the Night', the beautiful 'Stabat Mater' and an exquisite, award-winning rendition of the 'Love Songs' of Hafiz. The set also contains Rattle's complete recording of the opera 'King Roger'. A great collection for fans of the composer, or a perfect starter-set for those interested in exploring this magnificent music!
