On 13th January, Warner Classics & Erato released Karol Szymanowski’s “Stabat Mater” and “Litanies de la Vierge Marie”, featuring Aleksandra Kurzak and Artur Ruciński. The CD is part of the series “Warsaw Philharmonic”, presenting selected works of the famous Polish composer. The album was recorded with the Warsaw Philharmonic and M° Jacek Kasprzyk conducting.
“The singers are excellent, the women of the choir igniting a glowing halo around Aleksandra Kurzak’s soaring soprano. … Mesmerising Litany to the Virgin Mary sung by Kurzak with limpid beauty. Mournful, mystical and mesmerising.” – Eric Jeal, The Guardian
