“Any new Jonathan Plowright recording is a cause for celebration, even more so when he brings to the catalogue a world premiere… Stojowski’s Symphonic Rhapsody is a worthy addition to [Plowright ‘s] valuable and impressive discography of neglected music by Polish composers…Plowright is one of those pianists who can make even the most banal ideas seem original and rewarding…His partnership with the talented Łukas Borowicz is proving to be most fruitful.”

(Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone Magazine – Editor’s Choice, November 2017)

British pianist and champion of Polish romantic piano repertoire Jonathan Plowright has teamed up with Polish conductor Łukasz Borowicz for another excellent recording, this time with the Polish Orchestra Sinfonia Iuventus for Warner Classics
