Notes and Editorial Reviews

The history of Polish contemporary music can be easily seen in the wake of simple oppositions. Vanguard versus reaction, sonorism versus new romanticism, tape versus orchestra. The case of Andrzej Dobrowolski (1921-1990) undermines these dialectical arrangements and breaks out of order. The composer transfers electroacoustic invoices to instrumental ensembles, and creates minimal moods with minimalist changes. Dobrowolski’s music for various ensembles presents a very consistent process of expanding his own original sound world. However, these are stable and transparent structures only on the surface level - it is worth listening to them deeper and one at a time. Seen from different sides and under different light - Varèse's metaphor Read more also accurately describes the works of this Polish composer. Read less
