Penderecki: String Quartets, Clarinet Quartet & St
Format: COMPACT DISC
Koprowski, Wojciech; Bryla, Michal; Meccore String Quartet; Maczynski, Marcin; Bokun, Jan Jakub
Krzysztof Penderecki’s works for (string) quartet neatly encapsulate the stylistic breadth and trace the development of Poland’s most important modern composer throughout his six-decade-long career. From the avantgarde rhythmical study that is Quartet No.1, via an ode to Webern, to the neo-romantic elder Penderecki’s Schubertian Clarinet Quartet, this collection covers all his chamber music for three and four strings, even the early neo-baroque outlier of his Three Pieces adapted from his film music for the steamy 1964 movie, The Saragossa Manuscript.
