Item Number: NX.DUX1274

In Krzysztof Penderecki's rich catalogue of works, the ones in which wind instruments play a dominant role actually do not constitute an impressive collection as far as the quantity is concerned, however, they draw attention with their variety. Since the mid-1950's until today, they have regularly marked the composer's creative path as solo, chamber music and concert pieces. The four compositions here represent the Concertare Rules; on the one hand, they document the attempts of investigating the sound nature as well as technical and expressive possibilities of the particular instruments. On the other hand, they serve as a record of Penderecki's change of style within the period of almost 50 years.
