Lutoslawski Concerto for orchestra - Brahms Piano Quartet in G Minor (2016)

Brahms, Lutoslawski

Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra

Miguel Harth-Bedoya

After World War II, Poland was under the control of Stalin’s Soviet Russia. Artists in Poland found themselves subject to the same types of regimentation and censorship endured by their Russian colleagues. During this period, the Polish government mandated composer Witold Lutoslawski to fashion numerous works based upon Polish folk songs. At the same time, however, Lutoslawski began to experiment with couching these folk songs in a less traditional and more complex guise. Lutoslawski awaited the moment he could employ this technique in a serious concert work.

Brahms, Lutoslawski

Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra

    The Guardian -

"Lutoslawski’s Concerto for Orchestra (1954) has become a classic, with several fine recordings available. This new entry to the catalogue shines out with its precision, vigour and clarity of sound. The Intrada, taken briskly here, instantly grabs your attention. Glistening woodwind flurries and string skitters and cascades are deftly executed in the second-movement scherzo (Capriccio notturno ed Arioso: Vivace). These feel like preludes to the big final movement with its mysterious passacaglia and brilliant climax. Schoenberg’s orchestrations of Brahms always merit revisiting, not least because the odd alliance of these two contrasting composers is always so unexpected. A seriously interesting and worthwhile album. 4 Stars"
