Notes & Reviews:

2010 will no doubt see much celebration of the 200th anniversaries of both Chopin and Schumann. Amidst all this, it is likely that the 150th anniversary of Paderewski will be overlooked. Here Hyperion offers a reissue of the definitive recording of his only symphony. Upon its original release the Sunday Times called it, "Utterly original and well worth investigation."

'Utterly original and well worth investigation' (The Sunday Times)

'The work can be confidently recommended to all those who are drawn to the more extravagant byways of the late-Romantic orchestral repertoire' (Classic CD)

'A performance of eloquence and dashing commitment. The recording is resplendent' (Gramophone)

'A stupendous undertaking by all concerned, a committed and fervent account with truly prodigious playing by the Scots and sound that simply beggars description' (American Record Guide)
