The Lost Chord: October 3 - Andrzej the Giant
Andrzej Panufnik is the sleeping giant of Polish music, always teetering on the verge of greatness, yet never achieving the full degree of recognition he deserves. His particular brand of modernism was eclipsed, in part, by the avant-garde experiments of his friend and compatriot, Witold Lutoslawski. Sample two of Panufnik’s major works: the folk-inflected “Sinfonia Rustica” and the religio-patriotic “Sinfonia Sacra.” Watch your toes! The giant stirs, this Sunday at 10 pm.
