Krzysztof Penderecki is one of the world's greatest living composers, and this collection of works spans more than 50 years of his career, from the iconic Threnody, a great sonic wail dedicated to the victims of Hiroshima, to the tender and haunting Adagio for Strings, lovingly adapted from his Third Symphony. Soloist Radovan Vlatković brings to life the Horn Concerto which was composed for him and Barnabás Kelemen revels in the ferocity of the Violin Concerto No. 1.
'this collection works fantastically as a whole, not only because the performances are excellent (as you’d expect) with the best orchestra in London but also because of this backwards cross-section format … As a listening experience, the disc has a real sense of direction and for that reason a lot of value is added listening to the whole thing in one sitting which I did with great pleasure.'
