Penderecki’s Sinfonietta(s) — PREMIERE!!!

 

Penderecki’s Sinfonietta(s) is a tribute to one of the greatest masters of contemporary music ― Krzysztof Penderecki, who passed away shortly prior to the release of this recording.

 

The works on this album underscore the composer’s very close ties to the Orchestra of the Royal Capital City of Krakow Sinfonietta Cracovia (which come only into being thanks to the tremendous support of Penderecki and his wife Elżbieta) and his special relationship with the Sinfonietta’s director and chief conductor, Jurek Dybał, the founder and director of the International Krzysztof Penderecki Festival – Level 320. All the works were recorded in the Krzysztof Penderecki European Centre for Music in Lusławice (Poland), which contains a concert hall with excellent acoustics that was built under Penderecki’s personal supervision.

 

At the heart of Dybał’s and the Sinfonietta’s musical statement is the premiere recording of the Sinfonietta No. 3, Leaves of an Unwritten Diary. The piece is an emotional composer’s journey through memories of his life and childhood and symbolizes unexplored opportunities as described through music.

 

All the included compositions have been thoroughly worked on in many performances and rehearsals that were supervised by Penderecki. Over the course of its 25 years, the orchestra has performed most of Penderecki’s orchestral works under the Master himself, as well as under other artists, such as the Sinfonietta’s guest conductors Rafael Payare and John Axelrod, and of course its current chief conductor Jurek Dybał: an acclaimed, charismatic conductor who has collaborated with a number of the world’s leading orchestras (e.g. Beethoven Orchester Bonn, Tonkünstler-Orchester Niederösterreich, Radio Symphonie Orchester Wien, Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo, L’Orchestra del Teatro Carlo Felice di Genova) and who is also a long-time musician of the Vienna Philharmonic. The principal clarnetist of the legendary Viennese orchestra, Daniel Ottensamer, joined Dybał and his Krakow orchestra to record Sinfonietta No. 2 for clarinet and string orchestra as the soloist.

 

All the Sinfoniettas on this album are the composer’s own orchestrated versions of his chamber music pieces, namely his String Trio, Clarinet Ouartet and String Quartet No. 3, which makes them extremely demanding to perform in their orchestral versions, yet vivid and colorful to listen to. The pieces that round out this recording have a considerably different origins. There are Three Pieces in Old Style, which were token from Penderecki’s music for Wojciech Has’ film The Saragossa Manuscript. They were written as a playful repartee to those music critics who had questioned Penderecki’s ability to write ‚proper’, tonal music. This is accompanied by the very touching Agnus Dei from the Polish Requiem, a piece that is particularly dear to the orchestra’s heart. The Agnus Dei was originally set for a capella chorus and is presented here in the composer’s authorized arrangement for strings made by Boris Pergamenschikow.

 

„After the Maestro’s passing, his diary will rema in unwritten” says Jurek Dybał. „But we will fill it with performances of his marvelous music and do our best to continue his legacy. This album is just a beginning of this journey.”

 

The album is available on CD and LP at Empik store, iTunes Store and streaming services: Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, Empik Music, Youtube Music and Deezer:

We would like to you to join us for a virtual journey through the time and music. Our guide will be none other than Ludwig van Beethoven himself! This year we celebrate the 250 th birthday of this genius composer, whose life is probably one of the most inspiring examples of unwavering human fight with adversities of fate.
