Notes & Reviews:

Polystylistic musical riches mark Alexandre Tansman as a free-thinking composer. Polish-born and active in Paris and the US, Tansman had a successful career and his music now enjoys renewed interest worldwide. The tender melodies of his Clarinet Concerto contrast with the ever-changing musical styles of his Concertino for Oboe, Clarinet and Strings. The Six Movements for String Orchestra form a cycle unified by deftly conceived interrelationships.

American Record Guide
The Silesian Chamber Orchestra plays with professionalism, authority, and superb musicianship, proving once again that Eastern European ensembles are just as skilled as their more famous Western counterparts.

Classical Lost and Found
... the Polish audio engineers triumph again, giving us immaculately clean, well balanced recordings. The soundstage projected is just the right size and in the ideally warm, reverberant acoustic of Karol Stryia Hall, Katowice, Poland. The soloists are perfectly captured, and the string tone is very natural with only an occasional hint of grain. Interesting repertoire and superb sound make this a must for modern music buffs.
