Playlists

  • Elżbieta Penderecka | Playlist “The piece I hold dearest is the one that introduced me to my husband: Polymorphia. […] I remember coming to a performance and my father saying to me, "You know, there’s a very talented composer and a very interesting piece you should hear." I congratulated Krzysztof Penderecki and that was also a breakthrough moment in our relationship.”
  • Zbigniew Karkowski | Playlist Acoustic and electroacoustic music composer and noise artist Zbigniew Karkowski presents his favorite compositions by Lutosławski, Górecki, and Penderecki
  • Marek Moś | Playlist Founder and director of the Aukso Chamber Orchestra presents his favorite pieces of three composers
  • Jagoda Szmytka | Playlist “If we assume that notation is a function of how we think about music, and that which can be written marks the boundaries of music, then in the case of the avant-garde work of these three composers, these limits are blurred by partially-planned freedom”
  • Anna Górecka | Playlist “I remember hearing many performances of Symphony No. 3, Op. 36 during my childhood; I also remember how hugely impressed I was by the premiere of the Harpsichord Concerto, Op. 40, in 1980. Today this concerto – in its piano version – is among the works I play most often”
  • Marcin Bogusławski | Playlist “I would like to talk about a piece which is not so much the greatest or the most influential for my stepfather’s future compositions, but one which played the biggest role in my parents’ practical life”
  • Antoni Wit | Playlist “Each of these three masters represents a radically different personality, and the pieces I have selected are sometimes equally distant from each other, which is why listening to them may offer very different and deep experiences. I wish the listeners no less! ”
