Polish Spirit

December 23, 2008

Nigel Kennedy (an Englishman in Kraków) and the Polish Chamber Orchestra recorded the music of Polish romanticists: Emil Młynarski, Mieczysław Karłowicz and Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin.

This short film tells the story of the performance.


And here I imagined that the famous British violinist would speak English like a hero from a BBC costume drama. 😀

The CD i available from Amazon. Polish Spirit, indeed!
