The Maestro's 75th birthday brought about a large number of events throughout the year. This concert was pretty close to the actual date (23rd November).
The young and talented Łukasz Borowicz led the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra (not to be confused with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra Katowice) and an international host of soloists in a nice set of Penderecki's rather recent works.
I ripped this one from Programme 2's internet stream, converted the resultant file to WAV, processed and then squished it back to FLAC, so the sound quality is kind of grainy, but otherwise fairly clear.
I never went back to this method again, because later Programme 2's stream deteriorated into something quite unlistenable.
The set list:
- Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra (a version of the Concerto for Viola and Orchestra)
- Largo for Cello and Orchestra
- Agnus Dei for Eight Cellos (arr. by Boris Pergamenschikov)
- Concerto for Viola and Orchestra
The clarinet soloist was Michel Lethiec.
The cello soloist was Arto Noras.
The viola soloist was Tabea Zimmermann.
Agnus Dei was performed by the Warsaw Cellonet Group, consisting of Andrzej Bauer, Michał Bożykowski, Marcin Zdunik, Robert Dacko, Bartosz Koziak, Karol Marianowski, Mikołaj Pałosz and Rafał Kwiatkowski.
