Notes & Reviews:

Featuring new recordings of some of his major works, this dual layer hybrid SACD invites to rediscover the music of Andrzej Panufnik - one of the most important Polish / British composers of the 20th century and championed by conductors such as Stokowski, Solti and Ozawa. Panufnik studied composition in Warsaw and Vienna. During Nazi wartime occupation, he performed in piano duo with Witold Lutoslawski. All his early works were tragically lost in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. Panufnik escaped from Poland in 1954 when the Communist imposition of Socialist Realism stifled creative freedom and settled in England after which he 'ceased to exist' in his homeland.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Panufnik's increasing interest in geometry governed much of the music he wrote in the 1970s, the Sinfonia di sfere included. The beauty of the music became highly objectified, just as his ear for piquant harmonies and idiosyncratic orchestration intensified. A potent combination, equally powerfully in the execution.
