Alphabet - Andrzej Panufnik

Symmetry

Extremely important element in Panufnik’s music. Symmetry of structure, often in the form of mirror images of phrases and sections, can be seen already in the composer’s first works. In his later pieces, it was enhanced by geometric inspirations. Symmetry and geometry are the most important elements of Panufnik’s compositional style (see entries above for Geometry and Emotions).
