This CD is very short with a total timing of only 35 minutes yet offers some interesting music:

1. Cappricio for Violin and Orchestra by Penderecki - One could almost not tell that the violin is the lead instrument in what sounds like organized chaos. But I like it. It is the Penderecki that I expect having never heard this work before.

2. Cappricio for Oboe and Orchestra by Penderecki - The same comments are true of this work, but the obvious difference is of course that there is an oboe instead of a violin and the work is substantially shorter too.

3. The Awakening of Jacob by Penderecki - This was famously used in the movie "The Shining." It sends chills up my spine listening to it.

4. Threnos or "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima" by Penderecki - This is an exersize for string orchestra. They "polish there nails" at the beginning. The work which sounds like an experimental piece which it was and still is has strict metronome markings and Penderecki once thought of naming the piece after it's timing like Cage did with 4'33". This is a piece which every serious contemporary music collection should have.

If you don't understand what I have just written, then all you need to know is that this is a very interesting CD with some "spooky" music. It is performed very well and I might say to the highest standards by the Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra with Hebert Kegel and friends. RECOMMENDED.
