Quote from: Maestro267 on March 01, 2023, 12:37:01 AMIt's even longer if you add the Chaconne for strings Penderecki wrote in 2005 in memory of Pope John Paul II. It fits nicely between the Sanctus and Agnus Dei. The transition is incredible.
Quote from: foxandpeng on March 02, 2023, 06:08:51 AMListening again to Symphony 2, after reading the last few posts in this thread. I'm reminded what a fine work this is. I'm doubtless long overdue for a Penderecki survey...
Quote from: OrchestralNut on March 01, 2023, 05:31:01 AMMaestro, I don't believe the Chaconne has been recorded yet in a complete performance of the Polish Requiem yet, to my knowledge. Only been recorded separately, thus far.

Quote from: OrchestralNut on March 03, 2023, 12:36:07 PMDoes anyone have any information on Da Natura Sonoris III (2012)? Obviously, composed much later than his earlier I and II in 1966 and 1971 respectively.I cannot seem to find any "Google" information as to whether there is any plan to record this?Perhaps a hunting expedition for @Cato
Quote from: OrchestralNut on March 06, 2023, 12:48:38 PMNow listening to this tremendous work. I think it is his (alongside the Polish Requiem) most powerful and moving choral work of his post avant-garde period. Gripping and uplifting!
Quote from: brewski on November 20, 2023, 06:43:49 AMJust found out that Penderecki's opera The Black Mask will be streamed on Thursday by the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, with Marin Alsop conducting. (For those who might be craving something different for Thanksgiving. )From the press release: As a high point of her first season as Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, MacArthur award winner Marin Alsop leads the ensemble in a rare, semi-staged performance of Krzysztof Penderecki's opera The Black Mask this Thursday, November 23, to commemorate the late composer's 90th birthday. Directed by Georg Zlabinger, Associate Director of the English National Opera, and featuring the NFM Choir and a large cast of soloists headed by tenor Tadeusz Szlenkier, sopranos Yeree Suh and Joanna Kędzior, and mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano, the performance will not only be recorded for future video release, but will also stream live on medici.tv, where it will then be available on demand worldwide for a full five years. The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra (NOSPR), Poland's first independent radio symphony orchestra, makes its home in the city of Katowice. NOSPR has enjoyed close relationships with Poland's preeminent contemporary composers, including the late Krzysztof Penderecki, who led the orchestra in multiple performances and recordings of his music before his death in 2020. Drawing on Penderecki's "wide and potent musical vocabulary, which ranges from raw-edged dissonance to a supercharged lyricism" (Washington Post), The Black Mask (1986) tells a story of murder, plague, blackmail and religious conflict that can be understood as "a brutal and complex parable for our times" (Bachtrack). -Bruce
