ByMaja Trochimczyk

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This volume gathers interviews with and studies of the music of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki (1933-2010). Interviews span his career (1962-2008) and studies are by Górecki scholars from Poland, the U.K., the U.S., and Australia. Chapters highlight three symphonies: the Second Copernican (Kiwała), the Third Symphony of Sorrowful Songs (Trochimczyk) and the Fourth Tansman Episodes (Wendland). Two studies by eminent scholar and Górecki’s personal friend, Prof. Teresa Malecka present his links to tradition and his piano music. The volume also includes an overview of Górecki’s career, list of works, music examples, portraits, photographs, and a bibliography. Maja Trochimczyk, Ph.D., is a music historian, poet, photographer, and non-profit director born in Poland and living in California (www.trochimczyk.net). Her work on Górecki was previously published in the Musical Quarterly, the Polish Music Journal, and Organized Sound.
