Quote from: MrOsa on April 18, 2007, 06:33:01 AMBruce, the Polskie Nagrania disc that I have is still in print. It looks like this:And it's available in Polish internet stores (haven't checked amazon): merlin and gigant, for example.It's a very good performance, with an excellent set of performers (including my favorite Polish soprano Stefania Woytowicz), conducted by a Polish contemporary music legend, Andrzej Markowski (he had done an enormous lot of first performances).Maciek
Quote from: bhodges on April 18, 2007, 06:39:02 AMThanks so much, Maciek! PS, Woytowicz is on the Ormandy recording, as well! (Or perhaps you knew that... ) Here is the excerpt I found from The Musical Quarterly .--Bruce
Quote from: MDL on April 18, 2007, 07:02:11 AMThe Ormandy recording consists of the first half only, The Entombment. The Resurrection was written later. I actually prefer the Ormandy recording of the first half to the Polish recording. Unfortunately, it has never been released on CD. Neither has Kosmogonia, which inhabits a similar sound world.
Quote from: Maciek on January 04, 2008, 12:12:43 PMWhat about the recording I posted for you in the Mystery Score thread? Have you finally listened to it?Here's the link - for those who've missed it.
Quote from: 僕はグレグ (Greg) on January 04, 2008, 12:08:20 PMThe World Premiere Recording of his 8th symphony on Naxos.com!i don't think they have the audio up yet, though, because it doesn't seem to work
Quote from: Maciek on January 05, 2008, 03:40:07 AMA new recording of the Dies Irae?! That's one of my favorite Penderecki pieces!OTOH, do I actually need a second recording...? Well, what I've heard of the 8th so far was also very tempting (and I don't generally take to Penderecki's symphonies)... Perhaps I'll have to get this new CD then.
Quote from: Dm on January 08, 2008, 06:42:28 PMDoes anyone have an opinion of Penderecki's VIOLIN CONCERTI (1 or 2)?
Quote from: edward on January 08, 2008, 06:45:49 PMFor me, both are rambling, intermittently beautiful, but too loosely-structured for my taste.For people interested in this composer, Naxos is about to release the Eighth Symphony ('Lieder der Verganglichkeit') on a disc with the Dies Irae and Aus den Psalmen Davids. When I heard this symphony, I felt it was one of Penderecki's more convincing recent works, so I'll be looking forward to reacquainting myself with it.
