The characteristic that most distinguishes the great conductors of our time is the courage to identify with the work: the adventure of comprehending and interpreting. The personal perception and expression of the composition, the confrontation with the composers markings and the exploitation of the orchestra's character and virtuosity, all lead to a vital diversity in performances of a work. In our series "Art of Conduction" we present you conductors to whom a charm is attached, a magic personality that enables them to breathe new life into the works of the Great Masters.

Although five years lie between the recordings of the two works and place, orchestra and composer can not be placed in the same context, the signature, the flowing expressive tension, the accurate dynamics that Pavel Przytocki demands from the work and from the orchestra are clearly recognizable. In our opinion, he counts as one of the most innovative conductors of our time.

Josef-Stefan Kindler, Publisher

Pawel Przytocki is one of the most talented and exciting young Polish conductors. He studied at the Academy of Music in Kraków, where he graduated with honors from the Faculty of Conducting (1985) under Professor Jerzy Katlewicz. He perfected his skills at the Bartok International Seminar with Peter Eötvös and with the Master Conducting Course at the Oregon Bach Festival in Eugene with Helmuth Rilling. From 1983 to 1987, Przytocki collaborated with the Krakow Philharmonic and, since 1987, with the Grand Opera Theatre in Lodz. From 1988 to 1991, he worked as the Conductor and Music Director of the Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra in Gdansk. In May 1990, he made his debut with the National Philharmonic in Warsaw. Since 1995, he has worked with the Orchestra Sinfonia Varsovia and, from 1995 to 1997, was Music Director of the Artur Rubinstein Philharmonic Orchestra in Lódz.

The CD Series Authentic Classical Concerts

Publishing culture in its authentic form entails for us capturing and recording for posterity outstanding performances and concerts. The performers, audience, opus and room enter into an intimate dialogue that in its form and expression, its atmosphere, is unique and unrepeatable. It is our aim, the philosophy of our house, to enable the listener to acutely experience every facet of this symbiosis, the intensity of the performance. The results are unparalleled interpretations of musical and literary works, simply - audiophile snapshots of permanent value, recorded in direct 2-Track Stereo digital.

Classical music lives! Lives through the interpretation, the tension built up during the performance, and through the combination of work, space, artist and audience. We accept the challenge and record the concerts directly in digital stereo and thus become a part of the performance itself, capturing, in sound and pictures, the impressions, the suspense that we enjoy during a concert - so that we may impart to you as authentic an experience as possible. Flourishing culture in living monuments, enthralling the audience and last but not least also you the listener are the values we endeavor to document in this series.
