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.

The Third Symphony (1988-95) could just as easily be called a "Concerto for Orchestra". It is a virtuoso extravaganza in five movements that would test the mettle of the most celebrated professional group. If you like to hear an orchestra challenged to the brink, don't miss this.
