The battle of Grunwald has long been a part of Polish culture and marks an important point in their history as it was crucial in creating a strong independent country. Three of the compositions presented on this CD are premiere performances, composed especially for the 600th anniversary of the victorious battle. This release is unique and should be of interest to lovers of modern Polish composition. Let battle commence!
“[Twardowski's] depiction of the battle itself in the central movement is the most convincing (with Jarosław Bręk in fine Slavic voice). Best of all perhaps is the fanfare by Janusz [sic] Lewandowski (b.1955), the grave solemnity of which...is in marked contrast to the eventual bombast of its larger companions.”
