Penderecki: Symphonies Nos. 1 and 5

"The superb new Naxos survey of [Penderecki] immensely conceived orchestral music is an opportunity to come to grips with this important composer, as his style evolved from enfant terrible to mature symphonist." --Fanfare

"These CDs come at a bargain price, but they don't skimp on anything other than the cost. They are excellent readings of this 'modern' music by Anton Wit and his National Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra, who are probably very familiar with this stuff - because it shows in their passionate performances. The CDs have excellent sound, too." --Tom Lyle, Sensible Sound, January/February 2002
