Notes and Editorial Reviews

There are two major works on the CD: the Piano Concerto performed by the marvellous Garrick Ohlsson, and the Cello Concerto - written for Rostropovich and here played by young, very talented Tomasz Daroch.

The Lutoslawski Piano Duo play the Variations on a Theme by Paganini, and as a complement there are three short pieces performed by NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic Orchestra under Jacek Kaspszyk and Court-circuit with Jean Deroyer. - Naxos
