SZYMANOWSKI: SYMPHONIES NOS. 3 & 4 (DVD) - WIT; WARSAW PHILHARMONIC; BARTMINSKI; BROJA; NATIONAL ORCHESTRA & CHOIR OF POLAND
Wit captures the hothouse atmosphere of Szymanowski's Rumi-inspired Third Symphony and the folkloric inflections of the Fourth. Excellent soloists too in another outstanding film from the Warsaw Philharmonic.

Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, Antoni Wit
Superbly filmed for Polish Television, Antoni Wit’s performances of Szymanowski’s Third and Fourth Symphonies embody the distinguished and idiomatic conducting style for which he is widely recognised. An outstanding communicator, Wit exhibits exceptional attention to detail in his rendition of these two great works with his own orchestra and choir. The recording also benefits from DTS 5.1 surround sound.
