Atom String Quartet reaches for the music of Krzysztof Penderecki – the most renowned Polish composer of our times. The programme’s main axis is made of chamber and solo pieces for wind instruments, from the Master’s youthful compositions, which are intertwined with “Three Pieces in Old Style”. Vitalism, motility and energy are main features of these compositions. They have naturally become a pretext for the quartet’s further exploration, interpreting Penderecki’s works in its characteristic style and thus giving them a completely new context. On the one hand, there is enough respect for the music score, on the other, there are brave formal decisions, which frame the improvised parts.
CD publisher is Szczecin Philharmonic, album will be realised at 25 August 2019.
