Sinfonia Varsovia – Jacek Kaspszyk.
Had it been released at the time the repertoire was created, this record would have been forbidden. This new Sinfonia Varsovia album is the third and last volume of the series 39’45, presenting works created in times of war, occupation, and – on this album – also Stalinism, ZSRR and PRL. Incredible soloists were chosen for this project: Marcel Markowski (cello), Maciej Grzybowski (piano), and outstanding conductors Jerzy Maksymiuk and Jacek Kaspszyk. Their interpretation is deeply moving, and the awareness of the historical context of Weinberg, Panufnik and Andrzej Czajkowski’s music presented is clearly perceptible throughout.
