The solo bassoon before the Dream Interlude is charmingly drowsy.

Most effective of all was Jarosław Augustyniak, whose bassoon depiction of the beggar at the outset of the second movement was beautifully inflected and cheekily pointed.

Jarosław Augustyniak was fantastically efficient in the field of bassoon modern technical abilities.

High commendations in particular go to principal bassoonist, Jarosław Augustyniak, who was splendid in the various solos he had throughout the programme; he is an inspiring talent, both in his spectacularly warm sound and his polished technical ability.

superbly characterful solo bassoon, Jaroslaw Augustyniak

Seen and Heard International (March 31, 2012)

Their very best playing comes in Alborada, of dry, nervous, springy humour, all muscle and no fat. You feel the orchestra is on home ground here, even if the superb bassoonist (rightly credited in the insert notes for his solo) is one Jarosław Augustyniak.

GRAMOPHONE (April 2002)

Next the Basque Symphony Orchestra wanted to pay court to one of their outstanding musicians, the bassoonist Jarosław Augustyniak, who chose to perform the “Andante and Rondo a la húngara, op.35” of Carl Maria von Weber. Jarosław Augustyniak displayed resonance and aptitude more than sufficient for his admirable interpretation of the Weber piece, and he was enthusiastically applauded by the audience along with his orchestra colleagues

Diario ABC (Madrid 31.05.1997)

It would be unforgivable to talk of the “Sinfonía Sacra” without special mention of the second movement which displayed profound emotion during the artistic interpretation from the bassoon lead
