Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra / Antoni Wit

Górecki is an important figure in Polish music, and his Third Symphony is one of the great ‘success stories’ in all twentieth century symphonic music. This deeply moving quality permeates his other works, but he was also a more ambiguous, interesting composer. These four works showcase different aspects of his art in a broad ranging approach. The nearest match in the current catalog is Nonesuch, which has issued the Harpsichord Concerto coupled with the Little Requiem, but our disc presents the piano version of the Concerto. Anna Górecka’s piano recording of the same concerto is on Conifer but in a mixed recital coupled with Bacewicz and Shostakovich. Antoni Wit is a master of this repertoire and his international reputation is growing all the time Antoni Wit, one of the most highly regarded Polish conductors, studied conducting with Henryk Czyz and composition with Krzysztof Penderecki at the Academy of Music in Kraków, subsequently continuing his studies with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. In 2002 he became managing and artistic director of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.
