Sinfonia Varsovia under the direction of Renato Rivolta is in yet another recording session in the Witold Lutosławski Concert Studio in Warsaw for a new CD set - An Anthology of Polish Contemporary Music.
In 2014, the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra celebrates its 30th anniversary. To commemorate this occasion, we are planning to issue a three-CD set titled An Anthology of Polish Contemporary Music, 1939-1945. The set is of very special importance in promoting Polish music on the international arena.
The Anthology will be recorded on the eve of some very important historical dates in 2014: the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising and of Andrzej Panufnik’s 100th birthday.
The three-CD publication is intended to be unique, encompassing a wide spectrum of works written by Polish composers (including Lutosławski, Panufnik, Bacewicz, Kassern, Rathaus, Różycki and Kisielewski) and performed by the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra under the direction of renowned conductors: Jerzy Maksymiuk, Jacek Kaspszyk and Renato Rivolta.
The album will be non-commercial in nature and its purpose is unique – to promote the culture and history of Poland. It is to be a document aimed at record and multimedia repositories and libraries in schools and music universities. It is also intended to be a gift for persons of merit to the Orchestra, for its friends and for selected guests of the anniversary celebrations.
