About

This album presents the final instalment of the series of projects with Krzysztof Penderecki's concerts, recorded with the Sinfonia Iuventus orchestra under the composer's artistic direction on the DUX label.

Penderecki's work is characterized by exceptional susceptibility to transcription and arrangement for other instruments - this is facilitated by both the clarity of texture and universal motifs appearing in many of his compositions. Often, changing the instrument changes the mood of the piece and reveals other qualities of the work to the listener. It is no different in the case of the transcriptions included in this album.

What makes it unique is not only the completion of an extensive publishing project, but also the participation of outstanding soloists, including Michel Lethiec, who received the prestigious ICMA award in 2016 for recording a clarinet concerto with Sinfonia Iuventus for the DUX label.

Fans of Penderecki's works will certainly find on this album many familiar motifs and harmonies, gentle consonant sounds and a whiff of romanticism so characteristic of the last period of the composer's work.
