These four works, written between 1973 and 1993, fully reflect Górecki’s
expressive variety. The Little Requiem for a Certain Polka, for piano and
thirteen instruments, combines a wide range of moods. The Concerto-
Cantata, which received its world première from the soloist on this
recording, alternates a moving vein of melancholy with a charged, violent
energy. The radical, energetic Harpsichord Concerto is heard here in the
version for piano, performed by the composer’s daughter. The Three
Dances are hugely approachable and full of exciting contrast. Antoni Wit, one of the most highly regarded Polish conductors, studied
conducting with Henryk Czyz and composition with Krzysztof Penderecki
at the Academy of Music in Kraków, subsequently continuing his studies
with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. In 2002 he became managing and artistic
director of the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra.
