Editorial Reviews

The great Polish composer Witold
Lutoslawski was an important
conductor of his own highly
expressive music. With Chain 1 he developed a new compositional method linking contrasting musical ideas into a
satisfying whole.

Format: Audio CD
Witold Lutoslawski (1913-1994) was one of Poland's preeminent composers. He became the best known and most important name in post-World War II eastern Europe and, along with Andresz Panufnik and Karol Szymanowski, paved the way for some composers whose music, ultimately, became better known abroad (such as Penderecki and Gorecki). Lutoslawski grew up watching his country suffer, survive and evolve during Nazi occupation as well as Soviet puppetry. This collection highlights some off Lutoslawski's best works and very sensitively and accurately conducted by himself. (Not all composers develop the technical capability or podium presence to successfully conduct their own works; not so with Lutoslawski) The booklet notes explain well that one technique that the composer relied on a great deal was what he called "chain music". "Chain music" for Lutoslawski was the construction of music that - regardless of its medium or length - could be analyzed in two distinct halves. A new section of material (motivic, melodic, harmonic) would appear during the second half of a piece which would then serve as the primary strand in the next movement of multi-movement works or in a new piece, which is now structurally "linked" to the piece of origin. This structuring and "chain" developing also lends itself to programming and performance alignments, as is present in the selection on this disc. In this case, Lutoslawski's "Chain 1" (1983) is structurally linked, as described, to "Chain 2" (1985), followed by "Interlude" (1989) and then to the "Partita" from 1984. The "chain" is built within and formally, and not always built chronologically, sequentially as this series indicates.Read more ›
