The seemingly obvious classic combination of flute and piano is at the same time a great challenge for performers. In new music and everywhere where we search for homogeneous color and balance it is difficult to find a common denominator for these two instruments, which differ in practically everything, from the way a single sound is conducted to the volume of sound and scale. Górecki, however, in his scores from several decades ago, creates such a possibility. This slightly different view is legitimized by many details of the composer’s notation. Our conviction in the validity of this direction only deepened while working on his works. Here, the result of an encounter with another musician and another instrument is a new and unique sound. Flute and piano can and do speak with one voice. In time, the soprano and percussion also join in this narrative.

The contemplative and elegiac programme consisting of Lullaby Op. 9 for piano and the nearly half-hour-long Dobranoc, Op. 63 for soprano, alto flute, piano and tam-tams is a concert unveiling of the CD project Goodnight Mr. Górecki in connection with the tenth anniversary of the composer’s death, which fell in November last year. The three-part Goodnight_ is a story about life coming to an end, with every step and every breath. It is music about leaving. Górecki’s harsh sounds touch with their fragility, but do not deprive of hope.

The concert will be streamed on the Codes Festival website.
