Notes & Reviews:

Krzysztof Penderecki is one of the most famous and prominent living Polish composers. Symphonies have a special place in his legacy, but until now have never been recorded in a series under his artistic direction. In celebration of his 80th birthday, DUX presents the best performances of his works with the Sinfonia luventus. His great musical authority influences the young musicians' energetic and fresh sound.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Penderecki considers his Symphony 1 (1973) a summation of his "avant-garde" period. A sort of tone poem on nature and mankind, the piece is in four movements, the outer two and inner two carrying the same titles. Symphony 2 (Christmas Eve) (1979-80) is in the "neo-romantic" style the composer would adopt for the rest of his life.
