Reviews

The strength of the ensemble lies with its empathy which manifests itself in excellent dynamic fine tuning. This is what its conductor and founder Wojciech Rajski stands for in the best orchestra-educational tradition. No self-staging, no excentric adventures characterize also his interpretation of Dvorak‘s symphony No. 8. Swift in their tempi Rajski and his musicians illuminate the score in a differentiated manner and emphasize the features of both middle movements in particular. If there‘s such a thing as honesty in music – it can be found with these artists. Badische Zeitung | with Krystian Zimerman | Alexander Dick | November 4, 2014

The 1982 founded ensemble may be considered as one of the best chamber orchestras in Europe. Under the lead of their director and founder Wojciech Rajski, the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra plays with beguiling beauty and operates on the same level of interpretation as the soloist. Clear beauty, absolute precision and musical expressiveness are the motto here as well. A wonderful CD with outstanding artists and a programme worth listening. What else is there to wish for?
