Domino is extremely proud to present Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs) performed by Beth Gibbons and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki.
The performance took place at The National Opera Grand Theatre in Warsaw on November 29th 2014, and was part of an evening of programming that also featured Jonny Greenwood's (Radiohead) 48 Responses To Polymorphia and the world premiere of Bryce Dessner's (The National) Réponse Lutosławski.
Following an invitation to collaborate at the concert, Beth Gibbons undertook an intense preparation process, including tackling the challenge of learning the original text (and the emotional weight it carries) without speaking the mother language. Typical to Beth though - the elusive yet iconic frontwoman of one of the most important British bands of the last two decades - the challenge was met and exceeded. Her performance alongside the maestro Penderecki has been hailed as triumphant, as you can see and hear on this release.
The film, was produced by the National Audiovisual Institute, Poland and directed by Michał Merczyński.
Beth Gibbons is the vocalist, songwriter, producer and co-founder (together with Geoff Barrow and Adrian Utley) of the band Portishead and a solo artist in her own right. The album marks the first music from Beth Gibbons since 2008.
Henryk Górecki (1933 – 2010) was a Polish composer of contemporary classical music, believed to be the most commercially successful classical composer in recent times, with previous versions of his Third Symphony, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, having sold over a million copies.
Krzysztof Penderecki has been hailed as Poland’s greatest living composer, and conductor. His music was introduced to a wider audience through its use soundtracking movies such as The Shining and The Exorcist.
