Not to my knowledge, Ray. In fact, here’s the premiere of the revised work:

Right, I don't see the Chaconne included there.  Thanks!

Yep, they’re both the same. 8) I actually own the older issue and this new one with the Warner logo. :D I gave my dad the new reissue on Warner.

Thanks, I've added the Warner reissue to my basket.  8)

What I generally find prevalent in fans of Penderecki are the two camps:

Fans of his early avant-garde period and fans of his later period, and never the two shall meet.  ;D

Not everyone, obviously, but in general.
I like both but definitely have a preference for the early avant-garde stuff.

If you have Spotify you can programme it to queue up the Chaconne (on the Naxos disc with Te Deum) in between the Sanctus and Agnus Dei. It's very effective.

I don't have Spotify, unfortunately. I am a CD Cro Magnon type of guy :D But yes, I see how that would work well in that situation.

I do have that Naxos disc with the Chaconne, a phenomenonal one at that, coupled with the Te Deum, Daniel's Hymne and Polymorphia. And do have the Wit performance on another disc for the Polish Requiem.

You can always rip the CDs to lossless files and stream the tracks from your computer, or burn the tracks to a CDR in whatever order you'd like to listen to play in your conventional CD player.

Yep, same. It's an interesting setup as the string orchestra of the Chaconne fades and then the choir comes in in the same key for the acapella Agnus Dei.

Here is my order from yesterday, essentially, doubling my Penderecki library.   :laugh:  Most (not all) will be brand new music for me, other than some of the music that has appeared on Hollywood films (The Awakening of Jacob, as an example).

I'm looking back at my listening notes, and I seem to like Pederecki more than I thought. :)  Recently listened to the viola and cello concertos and found them engaging.

Am not familiar with the viola concerto or the cello concerto # 2, but that will soon be resolved.  :)

This was part of my best of when it came out. There is apparently a ton I don't have, a Naxos box set would be quite welcome at this point!

I am sure at some point in time, it will happen!

I do believe it will happen, but probably not high on Naxos’ priority list at the moment. Penderecki passed away last year, so this rules out any anniversaries, but if they put a box set out in 2033 it will be a special occasion as it would mark the composer’s 100th birthday.

There are two boxes of assorted Naxos Penderecki discs out there. (Amazon links below.)

This one with choral works

This one with symphonies

True, there are those two. I think Antoni Wit is likely still planning further recordings, so until he is done, we'll have to wait for a "complete" Naxos Penderecki box.

Those are not boxes though!  They are just collecting the individual jewel cases together.  They don't save space.

I've been planning on listening to the string quartets all week.  I finally have the time today.

It doesn't have the 6th Symphony.
