Conducting

Penderecki’s debut as a conductor took place in 1971, when he led a performance of his Actions in Donaueschingen. Since that time, conducting orchestras has become an extremely important element of his musical activity. He has conducted his orchestral compositions throughout the world, and led orchestras in numerous recordings of his works. For many years he has given performances with Sinfonia Varsovia, of which he is the artistic director. Other Polish composers who conducted their compositions include Lutosławski and Górecki.
