Quote from: Symphonic Addict on August 29, 2021, 04:49:15 PMPreviously I had heard Gubaidulina Fachwerk and Alleluja as recommended by MI (John). These works could perfectly be here in my list now. The title Alleluja is misleading. It's not a celebratory religious prayer, but quite the opposite. It's like sounds from souls from purgatory. It's really dark, and I quite enjoyed. it. Almost the same goes for Fachwerk for bayan, percussion and strings. The bayan is like an accordion, and how impressive sonorities it can provide! Another quite somber and spectral (not related to the musical -ism) piece. Thanks John for mentioning these pieces!
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on September 15, 2021, 08:57:02 PMI've come to think that Bacewicz's late style features some nightmarish and dark works like the last string quartets and Piano Quintet No. 2. Granted, they could be tough nuts to crack, but ones that leave a powerful impression.
Quote from: Mirror Image on September 15, 2021, 09:27:56 PMThese Polish composers really know how to conjure up these types of sound-worlds. The Russians and Germans/Austrians do a pretty good job of it, too.
Quote from: The new erato on September 16, 2021, 02:44:10 AMCould very well be a result of Poland being squeezed between Germany and Russia/Soviet.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on September 16, 2021, 06:19:53 PMIndeed. Bacewicz, Lutoslawski and Penderecki are fascinating and notable instances of that. They did it effortlessly.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on February 01, 2022, 07:10:11 PMPenderecki is one of those composers who surely would be in many preferences. Some particular favorites in this field are the Cello Concerto No. 1, Violin Concerto No. 1, String Quartet No. 2, Symphony No. 1, Threnody for the victims of Hiroshima, De Natura Sonoris I & II, etc.
Quote from: Mirror Image on February 01, 2022, 07:17:15 PMDour and grim are two adjectives that come immediately to mind when thinking about Penderecki, but, yet, it's okay for him to be this way, but not Frank Martin.
Quote from: Symphonic Addict on February 01, 2022, 07:58:04 PMDefinitely we are listening to with different ears, John.
