Dynamism

Expressive dynamism characterises many Górecki compositions. It can manifest itself for example in a strong pulse and motoric energy, distinct accents, the versatile role of percussion and the use of sharp contrasts. Though at times dynamism gives way to static form, especially in the composer’s later works, it remains an important feature of his individual musical language.
