I Fiamminghi's vibrantly warm sound, the electrifying virtuosity of their playing and the expressive impact of their performances have excited critics and audiences alike.

During the '90s they have made a series of recordings by 20th century composers, including the composers featured in this set. Three albums are featured in the Music From the East box.

Rounding out the set is as recording of Gorecki's popular Symphony No 3 'Symphony of Sorrowful Songs', with the Atlanta Symphony and soprano Christine Brewer.

Christine Brewer is a GRAMMY® Award-winning American soprano whose appearances in opera, concert and recital are marked with her own unique timbre, at once warm and brilliant, combined with a vibrant personality and emotional honesty.
