Despite all the differences in the musical language of the works by the Polish composers Karol Szymanowski and Krzysztof Penderecki included on this recording, they are united by their quality as a lament: Szymanowski’s Stabat mater, completed in 1926 and based on a Polish translation rather than the original Latin text of the medieval poem, is still considered one of the most important contributions to 20th-century music.Penderecki’s three-part oratorio Dies Irae (1967) was commissioned for a memorial service in the former concentration camp of Auschwitz and is dedicated to the memory of those murdered there, which is why it bears the epithet “Auschwitz Oratorio”.

The album closes with Threnos, composed for 52 string instruments and dedicated to the victims of Hiroshima. At the end of the piece there is a tutti cluster for 30 seconds, which sinks from triple forte into quadruple piano with poignant effect.
