Superbly filmed for the 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.
Karol Szymanowski, Symphony No. 3 for tenor, chorus and Orchestra, “The Song of the Night”, Op. 27
Karol Szymanowski, Symphony No. 4 for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 60, “Concertante”
