Notes & Reviews:

Presented on three discs, this new release features the very best compositions of Henryk Gorecki (1933-2010) A Polish composer of contemporary classical music, Gorecki became a prominent figure of the Polish avant-garde during the post-Stalin era. While Gorecki's music varies in style, his works tend to lean toward harmonic and rhythmic simplicity. He is regarded as a founder of the 'New Polish School', joined by Witold Lutoslawski and Krzysztof Penderecki.
