Gorecki Symphony No 3, ‘Symphony of Sorrowful Songs’ 2nd movement.
Certainy is ‘sorrowful’ but also strangely uplifting.
Beautifully moving piece of music, but does need a few listenings to ‘get into it’.
The best version is with soprano Dawn Upshaw and conducted by David Zinman,
unfortunately couldn’t find a video of it.
It was composed in 1976, and premiered in April 1977.
It was popularised by Classic FM and topped the British and US classical charts in 1992.
