AGP168 is a 24-bit, 44.1 kHz transcription of a lovely recording of Witold Lutoslawski's Preludes and Fugue for 13 Solo Strings, performed by the Warsaw Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, conducted by the composer. This recording was released on LP in 1977 on the Aurora label (AUR 5059) and does not appear ever to have been released on CD. The recording was made by Polskie Nagrania in Warsaw.
