Description: Uncompromising, effectively expressive, strikingly desolate in its slow movement, Bacewicz’s 1958 work is an acknowledgement of what was going on in Western avant-garde music at the same time. Another rare Lutosławski piece is the little 5:44 overture from 1949 and Kurpiński’s opera overtures from 1811 and 1814 are certainly rarely heard. Płock Symphony Orchestra; Jakub Chrenowicz.
