Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Mikolaj Gorecki is Henryk's son, and this release pairs the two in complementary works. Mikolaj (b. 1971) goes first with his 20- minute Nocturne for orchestra (2011), a deeply felt memorial for his father, who died in 2010. It is in three parts. The outer sections are built with romantic, sustained harmonies and lyrical, plaintive melody. The central, contrasting section is a snappy dance with echoes of Gershwinian jazz. His father's Broad Waters, an a cappella choral work with folk texts is from 1979. They are effective and beautiful. Junior returns with his Concerto Notturno (2000) for violin and string orchestra.
