Maybe the first volume of this valuable series had more varied and interesting pieces,illustrating in the best way the evolution of this great, undervalued composer.
But also this second chapter has some gems, notably Sinfonia Rustica and Sinfonia concertante with its use of harp and flute ( a combination that has its milestones in the history of music, see Mozart's KV 299). The piece that gives the disc its title,Polonia, is maybe a bit bombastic.Lukas Borowicz conducts with wit and sure grip the Polish Radio SO.

Format: Audio CD
Andrzej Panufnik (1914-1991) was forced to start his musical career again in England from 1954, when he finally defected from Poland after some horrific wartime experiences. Much of his early music was lost in the process. Lullaby was composed in 1947, inspired by a visit to London before the composer came to live there. Walking over Waterloo Bridge, Panufnik stopped and noticed the slowly flowing river beneath him, and the moon above, occasionally obscured by clouds. He re-created the scene using two harps playing a rocking rhythm to represent the flowing waters of the Thames, with 29 solo string players creating a complex texture in chromatically sliding microtones, above them. Within that body of strings a violin, viola and cello play the lullaby of the title, based on a Polish folk song and representing the moon. The sound is ethereal and the folk song fades in and out of focus like the clouds gliding across the moon.

Lullaby is something of a landmark in Polish music, and set off a series of further “string texture” works from composers such as Penderecki and Gorecki. But like much of Panufnik’s music, it was neglected until a revival by Oliver Knussen in 2008 – which is a shame because it illustrates the kind of careful balance between experimentation, drama and emotion that makes Panufnik’s music so compelling. The centenary in 2014 will hopefully spur a further revival.

Introduces notations following the lines of a natural theme on Polish themes, which evoke the spirit of the people of that country. Very in depth forms that can draw you hither and thither into its title 'Polishness', along nationalistic lines, says it all.
