Notes & Reviews:

"[With Penderecki] as conductor of all of the performances on these discs, you can be sure the performances are pretty much definitive... The Cello Concerto is full of fascinating action and mad moments from the orchestra, which is supplemented will all kinds of exotic instruments. Penderecki was one of those Polish composers who helped the trend for large percussion sections, but he uses his instruments with panache... The final work in this set, the Symphony (No.1) of 1973 is massive, theatrical, and tinged with some of that religious awe which affects Penderecki's later work, the piece having apparently been inspired by a pair of angels on an arch in Ravenna... The music won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if you fancy something a little stronger than slop water then this is the real thing." -MusicWeb
