Looking for something different to listen to. Grab a hold of this recording. If those of you who are not familiar with Henryk Gorecki, I'll brief you quickly. Gorecki, Polish holocaust survivor, bases a great deal of his compositions from those terrible times. Many of his compositions are grim and very full of despair. This recording is no exception from this great minimalist. This recording has everything. Great dynamincs, dissonant harmony, excellent playing that only the Kronus Quartet can provide. For a change of pace from Bach or Beethoven I highly suggest this.
