"I always seek the form first. That is the most important thing." (Krzysztof Penderecki)

"The Polish Requiem" (Polskie Requiem) of Krzysztof Penderecki, for for a quartet of soloists, choir and symphony orchestra, combines modern idiom with tradition. Penderecki makes use of the vast possibilities of contemporary compositions in this missae pro defunctis (Mass for the Death), taken from the Church's Latin liturgy and Polish religious tradition. This exclusive 2-CD set also includes Oratorio "Dies Irae" dedicated to the Memory of Those Murdered at Auschwitz, for solo voices: soprano, tenor, bass; mixed choir and orchestra.

Maciejewski consciously set out to write a monumental work which, as he observed, will have the chance to fill an important gap in Polish musical history, which totally lacks large-scale compositions for choir and orchestra.

When conceiving his Polonaise for orchestra, Penderecki used the fantasia form, not unfamiliar to Chopin, which is based on a primary theme, which, as the piece progresses, is being developed, transformed and subjected to several different variations. Richly orchestrated, it allows performers to create colours that overlap each other while influencing the overall musical expression. Spatiality is a very important aspect of this work as during its world premiere the wind instruments were placed on the balcony of the Warsaw Philharmonic's Concert Hall. The composition could be called "the apotheosis of a polonaise" or, as the composer prefers, "a small symphonic poem on the theme of a polonaise".

First performed on 30th October 1946 in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory in the very midst of the Soviet turmoil, the Cello Concerto was the last of a series of three concertos, such as those for violin or piano, to be presented with Sviatoslav Knouchevitski (dedicatee) on the cello and Aleksandr Gauk conducting. Though first performed in 1946, it was written many years earlier while the composer was studying cello at the Gnessin Institute.

The pieces presented on the CD grow from a common root – three outstanding Polish composers of the 20th century - Grażyna Bacewicz, Aleksander Tansman and Krzysztof Penderecki. They are extremely varied in terms of emotion, Sonata No. 4 for Violin and Piano by Bacewicz reveals neo-romantic features; neoclassical Faintaisie for Violin and Piano by Tansman astonishes with its care for sound colour, whereas monumental Sonata No. 2 for Violin and Piano by Penderecki intrigues with the musical language which, based on the twelve-note scale, treats it in a melodic and harmonic manner.

These four works, written between 1973 and 1993, fully reflect Górecki’s expressive variety. The Little Requiem for a Certain Polka, for piano and thirteen instruments, combines a wide range of moods. The Concerto-Cantata, which received its world première from the soloist on this recording, alternates a moving vein of melancholy with a charged, violent energy. The radical, energetic Harpsichord Concerto is heard here in the version for piano, performed by the composer’s daughter. The Three Dances are hugely approachable and full of exciting contrast.
