Catalogue Number: 06N081
Description: World Premiere Recording of the 1992 Concerto-Cantata, a 21-minute piece in four movements very much in the style of the better-known Little Requiem - simple motifs varied in orchestration and with dynamics ranging from virtually silent to ear-shattering. The subversive keyboard concerto is joined by the 1973 Dances which are as close as Góreckt ever came to the folk-tinged directness of Wojciech Kilar. Anna Górecka (piano), Carol Wincenc (flute), Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra; Antoni Wit.
