  • Cat. no. 12612


The orchestration for wind instruments of Fryderyk Chopin’s Polonaise in A major has undoubtedly lent the work a new dimension. The big, powerful chords of the original inspired Grzegorz Duchnowski to create a particularly grandiose arrangement, helped by the orchestral forces, which include such instruments as tubular bells, timpani and tam-tam, enhancing the grandeur of this courtly dance.
