Notes & Reviews:

Conductor Michal Niedzialek leads the The Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra and an all-Polish cast in this performance of Kupinski's 1819 comic opera. - Karol Kurpinski (1785 - 1857) was active as a musician in courts of aristocracy in southern Poland. He eventually settled in Warsaw and took up various musical activities. Poles cherish for his works in opera and ballet; in his lifetime, his works were staged nearly every concert season in Warsaw.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Karol Kurpinski (1785-1857) is hardly recognized in the music world. Yet he composed 26 operas and the first Polish ballet. The ballet and several of his operas continue to be produced today. At least in the case of Castle Kurpinski's music is a total delight. The catchy romantic melodies tickle the ear - it's truly "smiling music". It's a tale of love lost and regained, hence the opera's subtitle, Bojomir and Wanda. This lovely performance lives up to the lovely music. The singers are a delight, the orchestra delicate.
