Description: Lukaszewski's concerto from 2007 is the only non-arranged work on this program (except for the short piece by Raman) and is unusual for being in a slow-fast-slow sequence. Rich harmonies and hints of minimalism sometimes suggest the powerful film scores of Kilar or other Polish composers of that generation. The other pieces are all very melodious examples of neo-romanticism with jazz elements also present in Morgan's piece. Greg Banaszak (sax), Katherine DeJongh (flute), Podlasie Philharmonic Orchestra; Piotr Borkowski.
