Notes and Editorial Reviews

The title “Zan Tontemiquico” is drawn from a poem by Tochihuitzin, a prince and poet who lived at the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries. The poem was written in Náhuatl, which was spoken in the present Mexico before the arrival of Spaniards. In a free translation the title means “We only come to dream.” This, closing the album, programme piece for orchestra, superbly performed by the Aukso ensemble directed by Marek Mos, is preceded by two compositions dedicated to the musicians of the Silesian Trio. The Titanic Trio is inspired by a whole range of cultural associations, not only musical, present in the legend of the Titanic, including the poetry of Czeslaw Milosz. The deprived of the programme references Trio Concertante, recorded Read more together with Aukso, is calligraphically economical, yet at the same time emotionally rich music – consisting of strongly separated sound plans. The works present the main characteristics of the pieces by Mikolaj Górecki: musical erudition, allusiveness, atmosphere, and stylistic diversity. Read less
