Product description

Product Description

The first three releases in the Panufnik Symphonic Work cycle have been met with outstanding praise. The aspiring young conductor Lucasz Borowicz leads the larger forces of the Konzerthausorchester Berlin through the adventurous scores of the second and third symphonies and indeed the rest of the series. Panufniks third symphony Sacra is his most performed symphony even today.


The Second and Third symphonies, Sinfonia Elegiaca and Sinfonia Sacra, from 1957 and 1963 respectively, were the first that Andrzej Panufnik composed after settling in Britain in 1954. The slow-fast-slow single-movement Elegiaca, dedicated to the victims of the second world war, recycled material from a Symphony for Peace that Panufnik had withdrawn after its first performance, while the Sacra, with its sequence of three "Visions" and a final Hymn, was dedicated to Panufnik's native Poland on the 1,000th anniversary of the country's conversion to Christianity. As these rather impressively refined performances under Lukasz Borowicz demonstrate, they are both beautifully crafted, contained pieces that never parade their emotional content too conspicuously. They certainly belong to a very different musical world from the 10th Symphony, also in a single movement, which was first performed in 1990, the year before Panufnik's death. The craftsmanship is as impressive as ever.*** --Guardian,22/12/11

Lukasz Borowicz clearly has the expressive geometry of Panufnik's thinking under his fingers. --Gramophone,Mar'12

This is a further fine instalment of a series which will hopefully also take in the concertos before it has run its course. --IRR, Mar'12
