American Record Guide, June 2003

"Scrapings from the bottom of my praise barrel: Marco Polo's grandiloquent sound, the earnest efforts of Wit and his Cracow musicians, and the usual merit of the annotations."

Robert Matthew-Walker
International Record Review, May 2003

"Presentation and documentation are very good, as is the recording."

Rad Bennett

"In America, Polish composer Wojciech Kilar was discovered by Francis Ford Coppola, who asked him to write the music for Bram Stoker's Dracula. That score was powerful and arresting; Kilar using his signature ostinato figures to great effect to heighten the drama. In addition to hammering ostinato, Kilar is given to modal treatments that often make his music seem related to that by the late Miklos Rozsa. The performances here, by fellow countrymen, are assured, polished, and dramatic. The sound is lush yet lean enough to let Kilar's pounding rhythms come through with great force. Highly recommended to all who love colorful film or concert music."
