Penderecki: Orchestral Works Vol 2 / Antoni Wit, Polish RSO

Album Summary

>Penderecki, Krzysztof : Symphony no 5
>Penderecki, Krzysztof : Symphony no 1
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Polish composer, Krzysztof Penderecki, established a reputation as one of the most revolutionary composers of the 20th century. The mid-1960's saw his style become more conventional yet the First Symphony, dated 1973, has sonorities which are still modern. Symphony No. 5 was composed in 1992 and is notable for the strongly-drawn contrast between slower and faster sections which give it a compelling dynamic charge.
