To my delight I had greatly underestimated Colin Stetson's interpretation of Gorecki's 3rd symphony. It remained faithful and entirely uninterested in redundant additions or appealing to his shittier fans. There was a lot of focus on texture and the breaking points of harmony into dissonance, and certainly had no interest in remaining minimal, but it really worked for what the ensemble was trying to accomplish. I think its out on record now under the album name "Sorrow"? If its at all as good as it was live I recommend it very very highly to you all!
Well, I have been listening to music my whole life and music was always my biggest love... and honestly, I can say, SYMPHONY NO. 3: II. LENTO E LARGO - TRANQUILLISSIMO IS THE BEST PIECE OF MUSIC I HAVE EVER HEARD !!!
Who said that classical music cannot be as popular as pop? In the 1990's,
Henryk Górecki won the hearts of all kinds of listeners, selling over
800 000 copies of his album worldwide...
