3.0 out of 5 stars Lutoslawski Symphonies, 17 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lutoslawski: The Symphonies (Audio CD)
Lutoslawski is very much an acquired taste which I have not as yet acquired. After having heard his second and fourth symphonies performed in Berlin by the Berliner Philharmoniker, I was tempted to buy the whole set by the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The second symphony is unique in my experience since the players improvise large sections while the conductor (in this case Sir Simon Rattle) stands around wondering what to do with his hands, more interesting visually than aurally. Of the four symphonies in this set, the most interesting and musical is the first with influence ranging from Copeland to Shostakovich, very 20th century modern. The performances on these discs is first rate, with the LA Philharmonic playing well under Esa-Pekka Salonen and the sound very good. If you like Lutoslawski, you should buy this set, but if he isn't your cup of tea, look elsewhere. However I am glad to have these discs to remember a couple of great nights with a great orchestra at the Philharmonie. I might add that the set was received damaged due to the over-sized packing which the mailman had to force through the slot.
