Title - 'Hommage Penderecki' [2CD]
Artist - Anne-Sophie Mutter

For those not in the classical know, Anne-Sophie Mutter is a German violinist who was supported early in her career by Herbert von Karajan; and has had several works composed specially for her.

These include ones by Sebastian Currier, Henri Dutilleux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Witold Lutosławski, Norbert Moret, Krzysztof Penderecki, Andr Previn, Wolfgang Rihm, and John Williams.

Released August 24th, 2018 via Deutsche Grammophon, Sutter brings us her undying ode to Krzysztof Penderecki on the 2CD set Hommage Penderecki.

For those not in the know about Krzysztof Penderecki, well, the Polish composer and conductor - and of whom The Guardian (UK) has named as Poland's greatest living composer - has recorded a slew of compositions throughout his illustrious career.

Among his best known works are his Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima, Symphony No. 3, St. Luke Passion, Polish Requiem, Anaklasis, Utrenja, four operas, eight symphonies and other orchestral pieces, a variety of instrumental concertos, choral settings of mainly religious texts, as well as chamber and instrumental works.

Anne-Sophie Mutter, London Symphony Orchestra, Krzysztof Penderecki

In what has to be the greatest ode to Krzysztof Penderecki that I've come across thus far, the Polish composer (who turns 85 in November) has his music loving adhered to and brought worship-style to the fore by the incredible (as always) Anne-Sophie Mutter.

Having been lovingly involved with his music since her youthful prime in the 1980s, Mutter's hands on approach to Penderecki's works show a tender, thoughtful, and most definitely rich take on what were already compositions of the highest order.

Found here we first have the more recent La Follia, an intriguing, if not musically strenuous set of variations for solo violin, from which Mutter, of course, emerges flawless from within. Then comes the intriguing Duo concertante for violin and double bass, which features Roman Patkol at his very best. The first disc is then rounded out by Sonata No. 2 (1999) for violin and piano; complete with Lambert Orkis on piano.

Metamorphosen, his Violin Concerto No.2, encompasses the whole of the second disc and rightfully so. Indeed, Penderecki himself has said of the wondrous composition that writing it he imagined he was moving in a vast labyrinth. Whether that be a fantastical one or one much closer to our own human hearts, it brings together a collection here that Mutter ensures will live with you long after the music has stopped.
