Description
"Folk melodies are the embodiment of an artistic perfection of the highest order" wrote Hungarian composer Béla Bartók, "in fact, they are models of the way in which a musical idea can be expressed with utmost perfection in terms of brevity of form, and simplicity of means." His Divertimento uses the Baroque concerto grosso form, which divides the ensemble into a group of soloists and the full orchestra. Jerzy Maksymiuk's brilliant career is connected mainly with Polish Chamber Orchestra, which he led from its beginnings in 1972. He brought this ensemble of 24 string players to the summit of performing mastery, and endowed it with a unique artistic individuality. These two works were staples of their repertoire.

"Bridge was Britten's teacher, who shaped his taste for modern and European music…. The Variations, based on Bridge's Three Idylls for String Quartet proved immediately popular, launching Britten's international career."—Musicweb International
