It has been said that suffering forges the great links in the chain of musical expression. Perhaps this accounts for the emotional beauty of Polish songs. For the Poles have loved their country with a passion — and their land has been invaded, raped and divided innumerable times in the last, thousand years.

All the pathos and pride of such a heritage have spawned a beautiful melancholy into-the romance of Polish literature and music. The triumphs and travail of these valiant people, who have resisted urbanization with their love of the land, have developed folk melodies and dances that gave birth to the musical genius of such sons as Chopin.

Robert Lowden's masterful orchestration of these beloved Polish songs are enhanced try the breathtaking sound of the world's largest recording orchestra.







The lush magnificence and stereo depth of "101" Strings is due to a combination of factors. First in importance, is the concept of scoring for the strings. The necessity of using 101 strings instruments is to utilize various harmonies and voicings and not weaken the dynamic of quality of any one line when playing counter lines. This is particularly importance with the violins and violas, and creates a wonderful rich channel separation for stereo recording. The listener will note that a times the melody line is in full presence and possibly a full and lovely conter line is being played without sacrificing the full dynamic value of either. Secondly, the original performances have been records under the most exacting audio engineering standards with specially designed microphones with characteristics to compensate for any possible distortion from the tremendous bass frequency response in cello and string bass. Third, and of extreme importance, are the players themselves. They represent the finest musicians in Europe today. There are, in fact, eleven concertmeisters in the first chairs.
