“A breath of fresh air let into the musty room of contemporary Polish music”. This is how a conductor described Krzesany (sparking Dance), a piece premoered in 1974, which marked a turning point in the compositional career of Wojciech Kilar (1932- 2013). Kilar discovered a new path in the simplicity of music inspired by the beauty of highland nature. The new expressive devices, such as repetitiveness, formal discipline, simplified harmonic writing and a growing predilection for using the human voice and words, perfectly fitted the composer’s deeply religious experience of the world around him. Sadly Kilar passed away on the 29th December 2013, but this latest release probably reflects the essence of this great modern composer. Exodus may well be one of the composer’s most striking works. It was used as the trailer for Schindler’s list.

Angelus is a work for soprano, mixed choir and orchestra in which Kilar wanted to write concentrated and meditative music like a man’s response to the gift of meeting with God.

A question that is often asked – “What is the essence of Polish music?” If a gauge of Polishness in music is a connection with Polish folk tradition then much repertoire is lost because of a lack of this link. This release on the DUX label is the very repertoire that falls into that category – written by Polish composers of the second half of the twentieth century. An important time, not only in the history of Poland, but in the development of their musical culture. Features a glorious World Premiere Recording by Stanisław Moryto.

Wojciech Kilar (b 1932) undoubtedly belongs to the most prominent composers of the present day European music scene. His highly original output shows a composer who proceeds along his own artistic path. This release shows of the choral side of Kilar with an outstanding performance by the Polish choir Camerata Silesia. The CD also has two examples of Kilar’s film music – Agnus Dei from the mini-series “König der letzten Tage” and Apotheosis, to the words of Shakespeare, from the film “A week in a man’s life”.
