Naxos Classical Spotlight

Jul 15, 2016

Raymond Bisha presents a new recording of works for violin and orchestra by four Polish composers, who may not all be household names, but collectively they’re worth the warmest of welcomes to anyone’s CD collection. Each composer had more than one string to his or her bow, so to speak, which may account for the compelling impact each work makes on the ear: Grażyna Bacewicz and Michał Spisak were also outstanding violinists, Alexandre Tansman a virtuoso pianist, and Andrzej Panufnik a renowned conductor. The soloist, also Polish and a multi-competition winner, is Piotr Plawner.
