Very nice, indeed. 8)

OrchestralNut:


First listen to these works.  Royally impressed with the Magnificat - 1973-74.  It is still much in the vein of the experimental Penderecki, and here you have another instance of the Passacaglia theme that recurs numerous times in his other works, most markedly in his Symphony No. 3.  Although this work is not quite as spooky and alarming as Utrenja, it is still quite a harrowing piece!  :o

However, I can't say I was impressed with Kadisz (2009).  There were some good moments, but overall it didn't make much of an impact.

Marvelous!  :)  That was my first exposure to the Penderecki symphony as well, via the film.

Magnificat is a marvelous work. I especially like this Penderecki-led performance:

Yes, I also listened to that performance yesterday. I'd say they are both very good.
