Notes & Reviews:

Best known for his choral and symphonic works, Krzysztof Penderecki has also written many fascinating concertante pieces. His 'Concerto Grosso No. 1' makes full use of the potential for interplay between three solo cellos and orchestra. The 'Largo for Cello and Orchestra', actually a fully-fledged concerto, was composed for Mstislav Rostropovich. These works contrast with the virtuoso 'Sonata for Cello and Orchestra', an ironic, even playful piece unconventionally scored for a large orchestra which includes two bongos, three wood blocks, whip, claves, guiro and tam-tam.
