In Krzysztof Penderecki's rich catalogue of works, the ones in which wind instruments play a dominant role actually do not constitute an impressive collection as far as the quantity is concerned, however, they draw attention with their variety. Since the mid-1950's until today, they have regularly marked the composer's creative path as solo, chamber music and concert pieces. The four compositions here represent the Concertare Rules; on the one hand, they document the attempts of investigating the sound nature as well as technical and expressive possibilities of the particular instruments. On the other hand, they serve as a record of Penderecki's change of style within the period of almost 50 years.

This 2004 survey of modern settings of the medieval sequence Stabat Mater Dolorosa is part of conductor Marcello Viotti's project to record the little-known but worthy sacred works of the twentieth century, in conjunction with the Munich Radio Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Chorus for their concert series Paradisi gloria. The four works by Francis Poulenc, Karol Szymanowski, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Wolfgang Rihm are dramatically different in conception and musical content, and may be regarded more as reflections of personal faith than as practical works for ecclesiastical purposes.

The instrumental concerto occupies a very prominent place in the music of Krzysztof Penderecki. This fact is related to the great life force exhibited by this genre in twentieth century and in contemporary music. It is stimulated by commissions from virtuosos and by audience expectations; also favourable is the composers’ flexibility in approaching the form, whose chief idea continues to be the juxtaposition of the solo instrument and the orchestra. The violin and viola works presented on this CD are not only interesting, concrete realizations of the concertare idea in Penderecki’s music, but also examples of this composer’s sonic language and style in the period of his creativity which Mieczyslaw Tomaszewski called a "time of dialogue with the regained past".

“My art, with its deep Christian roots, aims to restore the human metaphysical space, shattered by 20th-century cataclysms. Restoring the sacred dimension of reality is the only way in which man can be saved.” - Krzysztof Penderecki

Penderecki said that the DUX recordings present the best performances of his works and therefore making the series even more appealing. This very special project is presented for the first time as a box set, at a very special price.

The two works on this recording are separated by 35 years, during which time Penderecki made a decisive break with the post-war European avant-garde. In the Magnificat, chilling instrumental clusters, spectral sounds and impassioned rhetoric unite with tonality and counterpoint to deliver a work of monumental emotional power. Written to mark the 65th anniversary of the end of the Jewish ghetto in Łódź, Kadisz is among the most distinctive of Penderecki’s later choral works in the stark contrasts between drama and sombre reflection of its individual sections.

hough the most common configurations of piano chamber music include either strings or winds, fewer composers sought to combine the two. Fewer still wrote for larger ensembles when bringing together strings, winds, and piano in a single composition. This Fuga Libera disc unites the contributions of two intrepid composers – both born of the same geographic region nearly a half-century apart – and their sextets for piano, violin, viola, cello, horn, and clarinet. The sextet of Ernö Dohnányi is …………

Krzysztof Penderecki is a national figure in Poland. He is recognised almost everywhere he goes; yet most Poles have never heard a note of his music. He commands national respect because of the acclaim Penderecki has won abroad. Until Gorecki's recent successes, Penderecki was Poland's most successful modern musical export. From his early experiments with 'texture music' (or just ugly noise to the uninitiated) in the early 1960, he moved to a more sombre neo-romantic style in the 70s and 80s. Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, dedicated to Isaac Stern, was composed in 1976-77 for the commission of the Music Society in Basel to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its existance. At first Penderecki intended to write a composition in several movements but during the work, the first movement grew to such dimensions (nearly 40 minutes) that the composer gave up writing the next ones. The Symphony No. 2 was written in 1979-80 having been commissioned by Zubin Mehta for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra of which the latter was artistic director. The process of writing it was very slow, then came the turning point in its composition at Christmas 1979, when Penderecki was able to complete the work by quoting the carol "Silent Night". Penderecki publicly stated the significance which the eve of Christ's birth has had on his faith and music and particularly this piece.
