A hundred years ago it was absolutely the greatest hit everywhere in Europe the oratorio Quo Vadis by Feliks Nowowiejski, based on Henryk Sienkiewiczs novel of the same name and magnificently scored for soloists, mixed chorus, organ, and orchestra. cpo are now releasing this gigantic work in an interpretation by the Pozna Philharmonic under the conductor ukasz Borowicz and with outstanding soloists and the Chorus of the Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic of Biaystok. Nowowiejski composed his oratorio in 1903, and during the following thirty years it was performed more than two hundred times throughout Europe and in North and South America not least because its literary source, Henryk Sienkiewiczs novel with this title, was very well known.
