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 subtitle '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.

Our ongoing recordings of Krzysztof Penderecki's work have drawn a wide following, and each new addition is eagerly snapped up in large quantities. This is based on universally recognised quality in all of these "fine performances" (Gramophone), and our "Penderecki series is [seen as] Wit's finest legacy so far: Poland's best living conductor at the service of its top living composer" (Culture Catch, both quotes on 8.572211, Viola and Cello concertos).

Lukasz Dlugosz has been the composer's flautist of choice for numerous performances of the Flute Concerto, and Barry Douglas was soloist in the première of the revised Piano Concerto in 2007. The pedigree of soloists, conductor and orchestra make these recordings a 'must-have' for all collectors.
