Sundays at 9:00 p.m. (eastern)
With host Ed Amend
Polish avant-garde composer Henryk Górecki (1933–2010) set the classical music world ablaze with the 1992 recording of his Symphony no. 3, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. Inspired by the themes of maternal love and wartime loss, with texts sung by soprano Dawn Upshaw, the release went on to sell more than a million copies, a number unheard of for a classical recording up to that point.
Join The Classical Station as we present this moving performance on Wavelengths on Sunday, December 6, the anniversary of the composer’s birth.
We showcase the best music of contemporary composers each week on Wavelengths, a mix of 21st century compositions and significant pieces from the last century.
