Capriccio is a complex, virtuoso composition with Wanda Wilkomirska negotiating the wild solo role. Even so, the orchestra (which includes four saxophones, contrabass clarinet, bowed saw, and electric bass guitar) plays no mere backup role but instead engages the soloist throughout, even stealing the spotlight on a few occasions

Krzysztof Penderecki was born on 23 November 1933 in Dębica (Poland). He received violin and piano tuition at a very early age and entered the Conservatoire in Krakow when he was 18. From 1954, he studied composition with Artur Malewski and Stanislas Wiechowicz at the Krakow Academy of Music where he was subsequently appointed as professor in 1958. Penderecki gained a reputation with a wider public with the premiere of the St Luke Passion in Münster Cathedral in 1966. The Polish composer taught at the Folkwang Hochschule in Essen from 1966 to 1968. Koryfeusz Award for CD Album "Penderecki conducts Penderecki".

Penderecki Conducts Penderecki Vol. 1. CD 3 Jun 2016. Krzysztof Penderecki. This album contains a selection of Poland’s greatest living composer’s vocal-instrumental works on religious subjects, representing different artistic responses to the challenge expressed above. Our selection also provides proof of the special importance that the composer attaches to what he considers as the most difficult of instruments – namely, the human voice. Penderecki shot to notoriety in the musical avant-garde in 1960 with the haunting string music of his Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima

Krzysztof Penderecki. He remains a doyen of contemporary music alongside Arvo Pärt and the late, lamented Henryk Górecki. Here, the 82-year-old composer conducts his own music with his national orchestra, the Warsaw Philharmonic. He also gives the triumphant premiere of a powerful new sacred work, Dies Illa, for soloists (Johanna Rusanen, Agnieszka Rehlis and Nikolay Didenko), choir and orchestra, composed to mark the centenary of WWI in 2014.

Krysztof Penderecki, conductor. Radovan Vlatković, horn. Adagio" from Symphony No. 3. Horn Concerto "Winterreise". Two living legends ‘live’ in Singapore: Poland’s greatest living composer, Krysztof Penderecki (. 933) conducts the SSO in his own compositions, while horn legend Radovan Vlatković takes on the solo for the composer’s dazzling Horn Concerto. Known for his ingenious scoring, dark orchestral timbres, wild terror and neo-Romantic mysticism that has influenced many contemporary film composers, this is a rare opportunity to watch Penderecki impart his musical wisdom in person. If you're into contemporary living composers, especially those involved in film.
