Scored for a large orchestra, including triple wind and a raft of percussion, Penderecki’s Piano Concerto, heard here in its 2007 revision first performed by Barry Douglas, renews the composer’s direct involvement with the ‘grand’ concerto tradition that culminated in Rachmaninov and Prokofiev. Its subtitle ‘Resurrection’ refers to the melody based on a chorale of a non-religious character, which gradually make its way into the foreground before emerging with striking power at the work’s climax. The more modest forces used in the Flute Concerto place no restriction on this work’s exceptional emotional range and kaleidoscopic colours.

“these works are masterpieces. The earthy, minatory Piano Concerto is one of the most exciting places to begin an exploration of Penderecki's music, although the Flute Concerto is arguably more accessible, being altogether gentler and, given Penderecki's earlier reputation, surprisingly tonal.”

Gramophone Magazine

June 2013

“There's a sincerity about Penderecki's Piano Concerto that, while naive, is sincerely naive...Barry Douglas, Antoni Wit and the Warsaw Philharmonic don't hold back; their performance is appropriately hard-selling and over-the-top.”

BBC Music Magazine

July 2013


“Douglas is ideally suited to this big-boned music, and relishes its darkly imposing and sometimes splashy textures...Wit draws a kaleidoscope performance, making this another valuable addition to the Penderecki discography.”
