Christopher Huss
Le Devoir, February 2010

Krzysztof Penderecki: Symphonie n° 8 « Chants de l’éphémère ». Un immense compositeur, tout simplement. Pas d’école, rien à vendre, à subventionner ou à promouvoir…Le Polonais a réussi, ô combien, ses Symphonies n° 7 et n° 8. Cette dernière est construite comme une succession de douze mélodies avec orchestre sur des poèmes allemands de Rilke, Goethe, Eichendorf, Hesse et Achim von Arnim. Ces Chants de l’éphémère évoquent un War Requiem de notre décennie: une oeuvre qui nous parle de notre destin et de nos troubles.
