Catalogue Number: 05K081
Description: As Naxos continues to re-record their Szymanowski, we offer this new version of the very rarely heard first symphony of 1907 and the fairly rare Concert Overture of two years before - both very Richard Straussian works of massive sound and, in these recordings, bone-rattling dynamic range - and the equally rare Fitelberg orchestration of Szymanowski's most famous piano piece. Jan Krzysztof Broja (piano), Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra; Antoni Wit.
