Notes & Reviews:

Performing the works of Grazyna Bacewicz, Joanna Kurkowicz says of this second volume of violin concertos as 'a tremendous journey through the incredible music of this fascinating composer... deeply personal and satisfying'. She continues: 'These works are like rare stones. You have to find them but once found they shine brilliantly.'

"Bacewicz's music is well worth keeping an eye on. The fluent violin writing here would please any general symphony-concert audience, and its considerable technical challenges pose no problems for Kurkowicz, and she is ably backed in the opening movements' complex solo-orchestra interplay by the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Lukasz Borowicz... Chandos' engineers, working at Polish Radio's Witold Lutoslawski Concert Hall, deliver attractively warm, transparent sound." -All Music Guide
