Penderecki’s St Luke Passion takes as its model the Passions of Bach, the events leading up to the Crucifixion related in an ongoing sequence of narratives, arias and choruses. Its stark simplicity and directness attracted worldwide attention and it was quickly performed many times in Europe and the USA. For many, here at last was a piece of contemporary music which made an immediate emotional impact, and the use of contemporary compositional techniques served only to reinforce the dramatic power of the work.


   




Review By Paul Turok,Naxos,

"... receives a gripping performance from Antoni Wit with the forces of the Warsaw Philharmonic. ... Wit, highly experienced with contemporary music, and Polish contemporary music in particular, offers a remarkably clean performance, the best currently available and well recorded."
