Deeply soulful account of the deeply moving music
on 8 November 2011
Antoni Wit adopts much slower tempo than the famous Zinmman / Upshaw version. First, I felt it's too slow, however, once I understood the conductor's intention to bring the elegiac quality of the work in more contemplative atmosphere, I've come to appreciate this performance. Zofia Kilanowicz proves to be a great match to Dawn Upshaw. The transparent quality of her voice fits the music and her singing is profoundly musical without wallowing in sentimentalism.
