A Word to the Wise - Save Yourself Some Money
J Scott Morrison | Middlebury VT, USA | 02/21/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)
"It's interesting that the movie music for which Wojciech Kilar is best known, 'The Pianist' (2002, the one starring Adrien Brody) is not mentioned in the booklet notes for this release. I suspect that is because they were written before that movie came out. The recording date for these performances by the Polish National Radio Symphony, under Antoni Wit, is listed as 1997. And the date of this release on the Marco Polo label is 2003.
What's more remarkable, though, is that this very same set of wonderful performances is about to come out at budget price on Marco Polo's sister label, Naxos. If you're at all interested in buying this one I'd strongly suggest you wait for the Naxos release--it's listed here at Amazon as only a few days away from the date of this note--and save yourself some money.
