About

"There is a certain type of concert programme that many listeners are not particularly fond of: two large scale works related in time, similar in form but with a slight difference - a sort of "mi-parti". Not that different to be interesting in terms of variety, not similar enough to be homogenous in terms of form.(...) There are, however, conductors partial to this type of programming – and what is more interesting, are capable of achieving success with it. One such example is recorded on this CD. It was decided that Stanisław Skrowaczewski would conduct a concert structured in a sort of "mi-parti" form: two adjacent works by Lutosławski, from the 1940s and 1950s respectively, both multi-movement pieces, beginning with a first completed attempt at large-scale cyclic form (in addition to an unfinished Requiem from his student days), followed after an entr’acte by a summation of what we loosely term 'neoclassicism' and 'folklorism'." - Rafał Augustyn (transl. Anna Kaspszyk)
