Thanks for uploading.  I look forward to listening to it after my current Penderecki play list.  I'm a fan of his and one of my classmates was his student so I feel like I have a semi-personal connection to his output because I consider my former classmate a very fine composer.

Dacapo released a disc of three concerti (piano, clarinet and trumpet respectively) a couple of weeks ago:



I'll be honest and say I wasn't very impressed on the couple of listenings I've given it thus far. In terms of his concertante work I was more impressed by the piano concerto La Notte and the Mignon cycle.
