• New CD Note (Lutosławski vol.5/Chandos)

CHAN 5108-1Lutosławski: Orchestral Works IV is the fifth Chandos CD in the BBCSO/Gardner series.  I hope that there will be a sixth to include Livre pour orchestre (1968) and Mi-parti (1976) and a selection from Musique funèbre (1958), Jeux vénitiens (1961), Novelette (1979) and the Double Concerto (1980).  Then the series will have included all Lutosławski’s major symphonic and vocal pieces.  It’s been a fantastic series.  The first CD included the Concerto for Orchestra, which on Polish Radio was recently voted the best recording of this popular work.  I wrote an account of the programme discussion on 20 January: Gardner/BBC SO top Polish Radio poll.

Here’s the link to my booklet note for Lutosławski: Orchestral Works IV, or you can scroll the CD NOTES tab above.
