Performance synopsis

After The Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky and Koda (a tribute) with music by Krzysztof Komeda, Symphony No. 3 is the third creative interpretation of the relationship between music and dance. Henryk Mikołaj Górecki's composition was written in 1976 and has become one of his most recognisable works. The symphony consists of three movements and, in accordance with the composer's intention, is presented in its entirety. Krzysztof Penderecki called Górecki's work "the most sincere music possible".
