The two works on this recording are separated by 35 years, during which time Penderecki made a decisive break with the post-war European avant-garde. In the Magnificat, chilling instrumental clusters, spectral sounds and impassioned rhetoric unite with tonality and counterpoint to deliver a work of monumental emotional power. Written to mark the 65th anniversary of the end of the Jewish ghetto in Łódź, Kadisz is among the most distinctive of Penderecki’s later choral works in the stark contrasts between drama and sombre reflection of its individual sections.

hough the most common configurations of piano chamber music include either strings or winds, fewer composers sought to combine the two. Fewer still wrote for larger ensembles when bringing together strings, winds, and piano in a single composition. This Fuga Libera disc unites the contributions of two intrepid composers – both born of the same geographic region nearly a half-century apart – and their sextets for piano, violin, viola, cello, horn, and clarinet. The sextet of Ernö Dohnányi is …………

Penderecki's return to tonality generated a renewed interest in the symphonic form, the dramatic First Symphony of 1973 completing his restoration of melodic language. It was a style continued in the Second Symphony, commenced by the composer on Christmas Day 1979. The Fourth Symphony was commissioned by Radio France to mark the bicentenary of the French Revolution, the music moving between conflict and moments of reconciliation.

Symphony No. 1, in four continuous sections, was commissioned by the Peterborough firm of Perkins Engines, and first performed there in 1973 by the London Symphony Orchestra and the composer. Symphony No. 5 was premièred in Seoul in 1992, and a Korean folksong threads its way unobtrusively through the lower strings at certain points. Penderecki again favours a single movement, although, unlike his second and fourth symphonies, the strongly-drawn contrast between slower and faster sections gives the work a greater dynamic charge.

Penderecki's Symphony No. 3 (1988-95) is the work of a mature mind, construed slowly and painstakingly. 'I've been writing my Third Symphony for seven years,' Penderecki said in an interview. 'Two movements were written in 1988 and performed at the festival in Lucerne as a separate piece, Passacaglia and Rondo. But I've known all along it was going to be a symphony. (…) It's just that my ideas take a long time to mature' (1997).

This collection of Krysztof Penderecki's music encompasses one of New Music's most intense, even extreme pieces: Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima. Played in the extreme registers by 52 string performers, this piece came off in every way as a careening lamentation. Decrying the bombing of Hiroshima at a time when it was still a historical blue ribbon on the war chest of the U.S., Threnody was unforgettable for its vast ranges of sound colors, from the quietest and most brittle to the most raging, swirling bruises imaginable.
