PENDERECKI, K.: Sinfoniettas Nos. 1 and 2 / Capriccio / 3 Pieces in Old Style / Serenade (Warsaw Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, Wit)

Composed over a period of some thirty years, the six string works in this programme cover the full stylistic range of Penderecki’s towering compositional career. The Sinfoniettas are transcriptions of two chamber works, impassioned in texture, courting elegy and terse gesture alike. With the Three Pieces in Old Style we are in the world of Baroque pastiche, whereas introspective intensity runs through the Serenade of 1997. Radicalism informs the Intermezzo whilst the Capriccio, written a decade earlier, reveals Penderecki’s lighter, more piquant side in scintillating fashion. ‘Antoni Wit’s Penderecki series for Naxos has been uniformly excellent…Top recommendation’.
