Great New Szymanowski
Hegelian | Concord, MA USA | 08/19/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Szymanowski's Symphony No. 1 has desparately needed a new recording for years, and this terrific new disc fits the bill, easily eclipsing earlier recordings. Symphony No. 1 is more enjoyable than its reputation would suggest. The Concert Overture, with shades of Richard Strauss and even Korngold, is very well done here, and the orchestrated "study" is a rarity I've never heard before. Wit and his Polish forces are well-recorded and know the music well. With a fabulous new version of Symphony No. 4 thrown in and excellent sound, this disc is a must for Szymanowski devotees."
