PENDERECKI, K.: Powiało na mnie morze snów… (A sea of dreams did breathe on me…) (Pasichnyk, Marciniec, Bręk, Warsaw Philharmonic, Wit)

Composed for the final concert of the Chopin bicentenary celebrations in Warsaw in 2010, Powiało na mnie morze snów… (A sea of dreams did breathe on me…) is an extended song cycle comparable in scale to the Eighth Symphony [Naxos 8.570450]. The individual songs, settings of both Romantic and contemporary Polish poetry, are grouped into larger movements and chart a progression from an almost impressionistic lightness to monumentality, the expressive tenor of the music ranging widely—nostalgic for loss, but also tense and impassioned.
