The music of 20th c. Polish composers from Witold Lutoslawski to Henryk Górecki holds a special place in the Warsaw Philharmonic's heritage, alongside its critically acclaimed performances of the great orchestral classics. The orchestra now brings its expertise in this repertoire to the music of their countryman Mieczyslaw Weinberg, now recognized as the most significant Soviet composer after Shostakovich and Prokofiev. The album marks the Warsaw Philharmonic's first collaboration with Warner Classics as an exclusive signing, becoming part of the international label's long history of collaborations with the world's greatest orchestras.The Weinberg release follows the Warsaw Philharmonic's 2012 Grammy Award win and marks the orchestra's first recording with its new maestro and artistic director Jacek Kaspszyk, renowned for his innovative approach to programming and his championing of new music.
