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 sub-title ‘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.


   




Review By Remy Franck,Pizzicato,September 2013

An Krzysztof Pendereckis Klavierkonzert ‘Auferstehung’ fasziniert mich vor allem der Orchesterpart. Was in diesem Werk alles im Orchester passiert, ist grandios und zeugt von der schier unerschöpflichen Fantasie des Komponisten. Und doch spielt das Klavier gewiss keine unwichtige Rolle, ist es doch in ständigem Dialog, um nicht zu sagen Kampfdialog, im Streitgespräch mit dem Orchester. Das einsätzige, aber 10-teilige und durchwegs (in der Nachfolge von Bartok und Prokofiev) sehr rhythmische Konzert ist mit seinen 37 Minuten eines der längsten Konzerte Pendereckis.

Review By Remy Franck,Pizzicato,September 2013

A perfect coupling, outstanding performances oft both works. At the end however, the deepest impression comes from the Piano Concerto, Penderecki’s moving  tribute to the tragedy of 9/11. © 2013 Pizzicato

Review By Jean-Yves Duperron,Classical Music Sentinel,April 2013

This ongoing Naxos series of recordings covering most of Penderecki’s output has been one pleasure after another, with this one topping the list as a prime example of a superlative achievement. Pianist Barry Douglas…is back and in obviously top form, easily surmounting every technical and expressive hurdle this concerto throws at him, and as always, the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Antoni Wit simply can’t be outclassed in this kind of music. Good to know that “meaningful, substantial and moving” music is still being written and performed, and presented this well. © 2013 Classical Music Sentinel Read complete
