Symphonieorchester Des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Leif Ove Andsnes, piano
In the two concertos, Franz Welser-Möst and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra provide vivid and enthusiastic support.
Peter J. Rabinowitz, International Record Review, 5/1/2009
The Lutosławski - written for Krystian Zimerman and recorded by him with the composer conducting soon after the premiere - is an intricate tapestry referencing virtuoso and poetic concerto traditions in an ironic yet never cynically exploitative fashion, and Andsnes manages to avoid po-faced downplaying of its parodic aspects while not exaggerating them either.
