    IT ALL BEGAN WITH THE VIOLIN...

    ‘As a young boy I always dreamt of becoming a violin player, I wanted to be a virtuoso. It was the violin, not the piano that inspired me to compose my first pieces, which I used to practice my technique. I devoted myself to composing and neglected playing the instrument, as it is impossible to excel in both of these artistic activities. To this day, I feel I have not fulfilled my potential as an instrumentalist. Still, when I am travelling around the world and am forced to compose in hotel rooms, even though the piano remains the crucial element of my creation, I find it extremely useful to keep a violin-fingering chart close at hand. Many a time when taking notes with my right hand, in my mind’s eye I instinctively visualize violin strings to make certain I have achieved the effect I was aiming for.’ from: a composer’s reflection by Krzysztof Penderecki

    Penderecki's international recognition began in 19.0059 at the Warsaw Autumn with the premieres of the works Strophen, Psalms of David, and Emanations, but the piece that truly brought him to international attention was Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima, written for 52 string instruments. Penderecki's compositions include operas, symphonies, choral works, as well as chamber and instrumental music. He has won many prestigious awards including Grammy Awards in 19.0087 and 19.0098 and 2001, and the Grawemeyer Award for Music Composition in 19.0092.

    The Violin Concerto was a turning point in Penderecki’s career, as he started to embrace romanticism and reject the extreme modernism of his early career.

    The Horn Concerto is receiving here it’s premier recording.
