MAKSYMIUK | Sinfonia Varsovia

Maksymiuk | Sinfonia VarsoviaWarner Music Poland will release new album MAKSYMIUK | Sinfonia Varsovia on January 29, 2016.

The appearance of the unparalleled talent of Jerzy Maksymiuk on our musical landscape and the ensuing artistic phenomenon that bears the name of the Polish Chamber Orchestra was a sui generis earthquake for all of us – wrote Adam Rozlach in the CD booklet.

The double album showcases both historical recordings which have undergone careful remastering and new interpretations recorded in 2015. The CDs include compositions by Mozart, Bach, Rossini, Debussy, Bartók, Stravinsky, as well as works by Polish composers - Grażyna Bacewicz, Tadeusz Baird, Adam Jarzębski, and Maestro himself (Vers per archi).

The album is a sentimental journey back to the time when Jerzy Maksymiuk’s chamber players drenched audiences attending their first concerts with great technique and artistry. It is also a record documenting the present coolaboration of the famous conductor with his beloved orchestra.
