Usually ships within 1-3 days
This disc brings together some of Penderecki's least-known works. Covering the whole of his stylistic range - from saucy pastiche to more hard edged radical writing - this recording vividly captures Penderecki's growth and change as a composer. 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 Krakow, subsequently continuing his studies with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. In 2002 he became managing and artistic director of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.
