Notes and Editorial Reviews
"A live listening experience." - Gramophone Magazine

The Polish Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1972, originally as an orchestra for opera. Under the leadership of Jerzy Maksymiuk it underwent such rapid artistic development that soon it left the orchestra pit and was able to dedicate itself exclusively to the performance of concert music. The orchestra became independent. Years of work with talented young musicians, under a conductor who was just as young - Jerzy Maksymiuk, and the orchestra's manager Franciszek Wybranczyk, brought impressive results. The orchestra quickly won renown as one of the most interesting chamber ensembles. In this live concert recording, the orchestra is led from the violin by Jan Stanienda.

Recorded live at the City Halls, Glasgow as part of the Mayfest Arts Festival, 1990.
