"...the early modernist pieces-the dense tense Threnody, the atmospheric if unfocused Fluorescences and the simplistic De natura sonoris II offer new aural experiences... They are given strong performances...with the detail of this difficult music well observed."

George Hall - BBC Music Magazine - June 2000


"The performances, as led by Penderecki student Antoni Wit, are lusty and vigorous. It is easy to imagine that the National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra plays this music with the same personal identification that the Leningrad Philharmonic under Mravinsky played Shostakovich. Between these two CDs, there is a trove of modern classics that cover a great range of style, yet taken as a whole stamp a deep impression on the musical world of the late 20th century."

Peter Burwasser - Fanfare - August 2000


"This is not only a usefully inexpensive introduction to the music of Krzysztof Penderecki; it also includes the only available recording of his Third Symphony...The other three works were composed in the early 1960s, well before Penderecki’s change of style, and all three demonstrate his remarkable ear for innovative sonorities. Fluorescences draws a prodigious range of colours and textures from a gigantic orchestra, but the well-known Threnody is even more remarkable in the way that it convinces you that wind, percussion and electronic sources are present, although it is scored only for strings...The performances are remarkably fine, the three earlier pieces at least as eloquent as the symphony; the recording is both clear and ample."
