Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on August 26, 2022, 11:07:35 AMI guess I was thinking more in terms of either accessibility...or favorites...or...maybe impact? Will start either tonight or tomorrow (knock on wood).PD
Quote from: Brewski on August 26, 2022, 11:28:37 AMWish I could offer some guidance, but I've not heard any of these works (despite being a Penderecki fan). Will be interested to hear your comments. --Bruce

Quote from: Archaic Torso of Apollo on October 08, 2022, 05:45:28 PMPenderecki is (to my mind) rather uneven, in that he wrote some good/great stuff and some bad/empty stuff, but it's the good stuff that matters of course.I think his chamber music is excellent. Try the Sextet, easily available on Naxos with a bunch of his other chamber music, an excellent disc all around.I also have a very nice disc of his a cappella choral music, done by a Finnish choir (the Tapiola Something, I think). Good stuff.He might have misunderstood his own talent to an extent. I find him generally better in smaller forms than bigger ones; although he insisted on writing a lot of big orchestral/choral music, the smaller-scale stuff is marvelous, and what I come back to most often.

Quote from: Spotted Horses on October 08, 2022, 07:13:34 PMI second the recommendation of the sextet. I also have the Naxos recording, as well as a probably out-of-print recording by the Prazak Quartet. I also would recommend the viola concerto.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on October 09, 2022, 07:09:51 AMp.s. I'd love to get ahold of a copy of it. Actually, do you have preference of the two SH?
Quote from: Spotted Horses on October 09, 2022, 01:41:12 PMI couldn't pick one or the other, both are great recordings.
Quote from: relm1 on January 19, 2023, 04:16:12 PMI really love A Polish Requiem. I prefer this incomplete version most But later movements were added so my ideal version is a hybrid of the old and new.
