Format: Audio CD
In the early 1990s Conifer devoted four discs to Andrzej Panufnik, culminating in the superb 9th Symphony "della Speranza" (paired with the earlier Piano Concerto) - one of the composer's last recordings, made in 1991 (Andrzej Panufnik: Symphony No. 9 / Piano Concerto). This one, with the Concertos for Violin and Bassoon and an early composition, Hommage to Chopin, was recorded in 1989 and was the first one in the series. The two others were Andrzej Panufnik: Messages - String Quartets 1 2 3 + String Sextet + Song to the virgin Mary (Conifer) and Andrzej Panufnik: Sinfonia Concertante for Flute, Harp & Strings / Concertino for Timpani, Percussion & Strings / Harmony. After it was acquired by BMG in the late 1990s, Conifer disappeared as a label I believe, and Catalyst, another BMG label, reissued some of the Conifer catalog, including the 9th Symphony and Piano Concerto (Panufnik: Symphony No. 9 (Sinfonia della Speranza); Piano Concerto, but shorn of the detailed explanations by the composer that came in the Conifer liner notes) - but I am not sure Catalyst is still operating either. Why buy these catalogs if it is to send them to the vaults of oblivion, I wonder.

Anyway, I don't find these three works as striking as the best compositions of Panufnik, the Symphonies he wrote in the 1970s onwards (starting with the 4th, "Sinfonia Concertante).
