Notes & Reviews:

The music of Zygmunt Stojowski has yet to benefit from the renaissance enjoyed by other Polish composers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. His Violin Concerto - enthusiastically received at its premiere - is revived here, alongside Wieniawski's dazzling Fantaisie, in volume 20 of Hyperion's Romantic Violin Concerto series. Both are brilliant dispatched by Hyperion newcomer Bartlomiej Niziol, accompanied by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra led by Lukasz Borowicz.

Classical Ear, September 2016
Bartlomiej Niziol rises admirably to the challenges posed by these works with his ripe yet never over-succulent tone, tempered by focused vibrato and secure technique... Lukasz Borowicz has the BBC Scottish SO sounding at home on Polish soil.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
[Niziol] has a seductively silky-smooth tone and a narrow vibrato, and plays with exactly the kind of lyrical, ecstatic intensity that Stojowski's demanding Violin Concerto requires. He is partnered by Lukasz Borowicz who, as in his Hyperion piano concerto recordings with Jonathan Plowright, lends an explosive dynamic to proceedings.
