GORECKI Symphony No 2, Beatus vir
Andrzej Dobber, baritone • Zofia Kilanowicz, soprano • Polish Radio Choir • Silesian Philharmonic Choir • Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra • Antoni Wit, conductor
8.555375

‘fine performances...I can thoroughly recommend this disc … the performances and recorded sound throughout are exceptionally fine.’
Gramophone

‘The work was a phenomenal success at its premiere, and there's no reason why it shouldn't remain so... It's Want List material for sure.’ – Fanfare

‘Baritone Andrzej Dobber turns between despondency and strength as the psalms call for, and soprano Zofia Kilanowicz has an appealingly warm tone. Antoni Wit has an admirable track record with Naxos, and this recording is another win for him. The sound is excellent: very focused and rich.’
Classics Today

‘Few more potent symbols of Polish pride can be imagined than the uplifting baritone solo at this work's heart, resonantly sung by Andrzej Dobber. This, and the sonorous choral writing, beautifully realized, will pleasantly surprise any listener.’ – BBC Magazine
