In the featured new release below, Edward Gardner and the BBC Symphony Orchestra and chorus give an impassioned reading, with an especially moving performance from soprano Lucy Crowe. Also included is Szymanowski's ballet Harnasie which draws upon Polish folk melodies as well.
Chandos continues to champion the work of Karol Szymanowski, and we feature this new release alongside previous releases from this important 20th century composer.
