Series: PWM Publisher: PWM Edition Format: Softcover Score Composer: Witold Lutoslawski
''Witold Lutoslawski treated the surrealistic poem of Jean Francois Chabrun as a symbolist story about love and death. In his musical interpretation, according to its default course he distinguished the subsequent stages of the opus which are characterised by different kinds of expression. The first stage is of an epic and lyrical character, the second refers to a lullaby, the third is of a dramatic nature and constitutes the culmination of the work, finally, the fourth stage is a kind of a lament ending with a reflective message. Lutoslawski's musical language is characterised by contemporary means of composing technique. One should take note of the unique twelve-note system elaborated by the composer, a characteristic time organisation based on contrasting the conducted sections against the ad libitum ones, and finally the vast repertoire of sound articulation allowing for unusual differentiation of the timbre.
