Each of these six orchestral works bears the imprint of Penderecki’s greatness as a composer. Fonogrammi alternates piquant sonorities, pulsating vehemence and moments of great intimacy. Intensity accompanied by neo-Romantic elements can be heard in The Awakening of Jacob whilst Anaklasis is a stunning example of juxtaposed, multiple sound patterns. De natura sonoris I explores more improvisational, jazz-influenced areas, as does the richly orchestrated Partita. The Horn Concerto, composed in 2008, offers an evocative landscape, glacial, powerful, yet wistful.

Penderecki’s orchestral works are some of the most sonically spectacular of our time. He is one of the greatest of living composers and his music appeals to those who are fascinated by his earlier, more sensational works as by his later, more neo-Romantic turns of phrase.

The Guardian

9th August 2012


“[The Horn Concerto is] handsomely played by Jennifer Montone, though she doesn't eclipse the savage beauty of Radovan Vlatković's performance on Channel Classics with Penderecki himself conducting. Wit and the Warsaw Philharmonic are marvellously assured elsewhere, though the music is uneven.”

MusicWeb International

August 2012

“the performances of the earlier pieces here are better recorded and generally better played than in the composer’s own recordings made when the techniques demanded by the music were clearly more unfamiliar to his Polish players...It is good that Wit’s comprehensive survey of Penderecki’s output is extending to works that have already been recorded by the composer himself and they need fear nothing from their competition”
