Format: Audio CD
This Heritage release marks the centenary of the birth of Andzej Panufnik. These composer-conducted performances of Panufnik’s 9th Symphony and Bassoon Concerto were made for BBC Radio 3 in 1987 and first broadcast in 1990. Both works are compelling and most enjoyable on first hearing.
The Bassoon Concerto, commissioned by Robert Thompson, was composed as a memorial to martyrdom inspired by the persecution, at the hands of the Polish secret police, of Father Jerzy Popieluszko. The same soloist also recorded the work for Conifer in 1989 (CDCF182) and the timings are remarkably similar, as is the overall concept and interpretation (Conifer 19:31; Heritage 19:20). This is hardly surprising on the basis that Mr.Thompson worked very closely with the composer on this concerto and it is clearly close to his heart. The Heritage version is preferable on two counts. First of all, the recording is warmer and closer, thus making it more involving for the listener. Secondly, the BBC Symphony Orchestra produces a more luxuriant string tone compared to the London Musici and this is really telling in the opening bars where the double basses and cellos have tremendous bite, depth and presence.
The concerto has moments of anger, probably reflecting the emotions that Panufnik was feeling about Father Jerzy Popieluszko. It is controlled anger, though, due to the use of an orchestra comprising of flute, 2 clarinets and strings. Bassoon and orchestra seem to be holding a discussion, sometimes reflective, sometimes heated but mostly sombre. The central Aria, running around 10 minutes, gives the soloist ample opportunity to display the instrument’s singing tone. This Aria is an elegy written in the style of a Polish folk song.
