Notes & Reviews:

Sometimes mere chance makes for the happiest musical experiences. More than thirty years ago the MDG team traveled to Warsaw to record chamber compositions by Béla Bartók and Benjamin Britten with the Polish Chamber Orchestra. Soon after this release the public and music critics acclaimed this recording as the absolute benchmark for the Divertimento and the "Bridge Variations." Since this project was concluded sooner than planned, a spontaneous decision was made to use the remaining time to record encore pieces from the orchestra's repertoire. Now being released for the first time on CD, Encores offers genuine listening pleasure and interpretations of lasting freshness.

The program including "The Entrance of the Queen of Sheba" and the "Badinerie" from Bach's Suite in B minor as well as "Eine kleine Nachtmusik" and Telemann's "Ouverture ŕ la Pastorelle" ranges over an entertaining spectrum of orchestral miniatures rightly regarded as popular favorites. Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's Cello Concerto and a Concerto Grosso by George Frideric Handel offer the orchestra's fabulous musicians opportunities to display their outstanding solo qualities. Mozart's three Divertimenti round off this delightful compilation.
