Krzysztof Baculewski "Subjective Annals 60 Editions of the Festival"


Another festival edition with a vague pro le. A pinch of the classics: the Opera from Brno with two works by Leoš Janáček (The Cunning Little Vixen and From the House of the Dead); the avant-garde: San Francisco Polyphony by György Ligeti, a memorable performance of Black Angels by George Crumb (Wilanów Quartet at its most excellent); La Passion selon Sade by Sylvano Bussotti - a multimedia spectacle, as we would call it today, in the Hall of the Warsaw University of Technology, with computer graphics appearing for the first time; Como una ola de fuerza y luz by Luigi Nono. Polish works included: Other Voices by Tomasz Sikorski, Psychodrama by Tadeusz Baird, The Awakening of Jacob and Magni cat by Krzysztof Penderecki, Paroles tissées by Witold Lutosławski with Peter Pears as soloist, the opera Zmierzch Peryna (The Twilight of Peryn) by Zbigniew Penherski, Music for Orchestra No. 4 'a-la' by Andrzej Dobrowolski.
