Antoni Wit conducts Szymanowski
Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra
Superbly filmed for Polish Television, Antoni Wit's performances of Karol Szymanowski's third and fourth symphonies embody the distinguished and idiomatic conducting style for which he is widely recognised.
An outstanding communicator, Wit exhibits exceptional attention to detail in his rendition of these two great works, recorded while Wit was principal conductor or the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir.
In the press:Wit captures the hothouse atmosphere of Szymanowski's Rumi-inspired Third Symphony and the folkloric inflections of the Fourth. Excellent soloists too in another outstanding film from the Warsaw Philharmonic.
