Notes & Reviews:

Henryk Górecki (1933 - 2010) made his reputation as a leader of the Polish avant-garde in the 1950s, with his early works marking the most colorful and vibrant expression of the new Polish wave. Inspired by folk and religious influences, and demonstrating a clear affinity with the likes of Szymanowski and Bartók, the emotional power and clarity of his music continues to radiate and inspire. Tracing his choral works from the Psalm settings of 1972 to music written in his final decade, this disc provides a fascinating insight into one of the most unique musical voices of the 20th century.
