Reviews
“Warsaw is the shining star of the newly emerging economies of Eastern Europe, and the recent world premiere of Preisner’s Requiem for my Friend reflected its confidence. Staged on a lavish scale at the Grand Theatre before an invited black tie audience of 2000, it was a unique artistic event…Eerily atmospheric, it is conventionally tonal throughout. Spatial sound and great emphasis on sonority are the key to its mood: the large orchestra includes organ, vibraphone, bells, gongs and a battery of percussion.” “Grand Theatre, Warsaw, October 1998”
Brendan Carroll, BBC Music Magazine,,1/1/0001
