Orchestra

Lutosławski wrote four symphonies and many other works for his favourite, large-scale medium. What is idiomatic of the composer’s technique is his ability to isolate characteristic “thinner” textures out of the entire ensemble (tutti). Lutosławski was a master of the orchestra, not only as composer, but also as a conductor of his works.
