Two musical orders meet in the programme of this album, both with reference to the most broadly conceived music history and to the universe of Krzysztof Penderecki’s output.
Solo concert with orchestra
In Mykietyn’s earlier works, it was harmony that provided the ‘stem cells’ of the composer’s music.
The exposition and the entire first move dazzle not so much by the abundance of themes and episodes as by the freedom and the mastery with which this highly varied material is transformed into a uniform, crack-less whole.
An astonishing traversal of Bach’s seven concertos for keyboard and strings, played in concert and recorded live as part of the Arsenal’s cross-borders program METZ-ARSENAL.
