HENRYK GORECKI SYMPHONY #3 SORROWFUL SONGS



I KNOW THIS ISNT MY STANDARD FAIR TO PUT HERE- BUT TO ME- MUSIC OR FILM THAT IS BEAUTIFUL IS JUST THAT BEAUTIFUL. WHETHER IT BE DEVO , SLAYER , HELLRAISER , CRESTFALLEN , TO THIS ISLAND EARTH WHATEVER. BEAUTIFUL IS BEAUTIFUL.

THIS PIECE I HEARD EONS AGO- AND LOVED IT- SO VERY GRABBING, ENTICING- DAWN UPSHAW WHO IS THE VOCALISTS IN THIS PIECE , ACTUALLY THIS IS 3 PIECES PLACED INTO ONE LONG TRACK , IS AN AMAZING SINGER. THE FIRST PART IS ABOUT 23 MINUTES LONG AND IT KEEPS BUILDING FROM THE START AND ABOUT MINUTE 10 IT GETS LOUDER AND THEN WITHIN A FEW MINUTES IT BRINGS IN THIS AMAZING VOICE- AND IT IS MUSIC THAT TOUCHES THE SOUL.

I DONT KNOW A LOT OF ABOUT HENRYK GORECKI- BUT THAT HE WAS BORN EARLY 20TH CENTURY AND DIED IN 1990'S I THINK. AND THIS PIECE IS ONE OF WHAT THEY CONSIDER HIS MASTERPIECE- START THIS TRACK- TURN OFF THE LIGHTS- OR BETTER YET- TURN OF LIGHTS PUT ON HEADPHONES- AND JUST BE SWEPT AWAY . I HOPE YOU ENJOY- IT IS AN AMAZING SONG BY AN AMAZING POLISH COMPOSER - AND IT STIRS THE SOUL.
