KRZYSZTOF PENDERECKI (b.1933): Piano Concerto "Resurrection", Concerto for Flute and Chamber Orchestra.
Catalogue Number: 04O068
Description: The sprawling, 37-minute piano concerto (2001/2, rev. 2007) is a compelling, dramatic (and often very loud!) work in a single movement made up of ten sections (tracked individually on the CD). Its subtitle comes from a choral-like melody which alternates almost throughout with a short, agitated rhythmic motif. Though more modestly orchestrated (and, at 23 minutes, quite shorter), the 1992 flute concerto has a wider emotional range and a kaleidoscopic range of orchestral color. Barry Douglas (piano), Lukasz Dlugosz (flute), Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra; Antoni Wit.
