PENDERECKI, K.: Credo / Cantata in honorem Almae Matris Universitatis Iagellonicae sescentos abhinc annos fundatae (Warsaw Philharmonic, Wit)

Described by USA Today as ‘one of Penderecki’s most colorful and extroverted [pieces]’, the Credo is a sweeping, lavishly scored and highly Romantic setting of the Catholic profession of faith. Its use of traditional tonality alongside passages of choral speech, ringing brass and exotic percussive effects marks it as a potent Neo-romantic masterpiece. Composed more than 30 years earlier, the short avant garde Cantata recalls the sound world of Ligeti and celebrates the survival, over 600 years, of the University near Kraków. ‘Antoni Wit and his Polish forces are incomparable in this repertoire’ (Penderecki’s Utrenja, Naxos 8.572031 / David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com).
