Mlynarski and Karlowicz, both forgotten for years even in their own country, recently picked up by Kennedy. It had to be a reason that Kennedy felt such a commitment for them: the beauty of their music. In particular, Karlowicz's concerto - a splendid match with following Chopin's nocturnes. Great enjoyment.

This is a really beuatiful album performed by the violin legend Nigel Kennedy. The works are little known Polish concertos but as soon as I heard them they felt familiar, maybe it's the beautiful music or the way he plays them from the heart. I've heard that he will be performing in the UK in 2008, I can't wait!

I picked this up mainly on the strength of Karlowicz's name, but also because I admire Kennedy despite his occasional personal lunacy. His performance of the lushly late-romantic Karlowicz is passionate and committed and yet somehow lacks the last morsel of insouciance and technical brilliance that Tasmin Little's performance on Hyperion brings to it.
What might have been, had Karlowicz lived a little longer...
Nevertheless, Polish spirit in abundance. Bravo!

The music is OK - average romantic period concerto's - but the recording does not do justice to either Kennedy or the Orchestra, who both perform enthusiastically. Kennedy's tone is second to none but you would not think so listening to this. The video of the concert that was shown on Sky Art's had similarly poor sound but it at least improved towards the latter half of the concert, tempting me to buy the CD, whereas the CD remains muddy throughout. I have 100+ CDs of violin concertos and this is one of the worst for sound quality - Only old mono 'historic' recordings have less clarity and presence.
