3.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressed 5 April 2013
Format:Blu-ray Audio
I'm a totally devoted fan of mr. Wit's art and his orchestra, the Warsaw Philharmonic, is one of the finest I've ever heard in this repertoire. I own many CD's on the Naxos label with this conductor/orchestra combination: Karlowicz symphonic poems, Weinberg symphony nr.8, Penderecki and Lustoslawski series and the Szymanowski's. I really don't understand this releases. Naxos, probably not a fan of the SACD possibilities, tries the Blu Ray Audio thing. It's expensive and I wonder if there's a market for. I only have stereo at home so had to listen with a friend who has 7.1 Surround or whatever. I found the result overwhelming, tiresome, reverberant and muddy. The CD is dynamic, just plain stereo, smack into your face as a recording. I prefer it. Why on earth would you put 60 minutes of not very middle of the road repertoire on a disc that can easily hold a whole Wagner opera in perfect sound? That can easily hold the complete Brahms or Schumann symphonies or Beethoven piano concertos? Why don't you try that Naxos?

There is even a pianist involved who wears a similar family name as me ( the same just different spelling, I presume)
Great singer too btw.
Famous orchestra with A.Wit also
No, seriously, great music - great recording.
Will check out the polish composer in future.
Greetings from Moldavia, at the moment
