Górecki wrote his Third Symphony in 1976, but it only came onto the market in 1992. It made its entrance with so much fanfare that it has overshadowed all of his other work. And this other work, by and large, belongs in a rather different category, one of much more avant-garde and revolutionary material: a category of music that many fans of the Symphony would not be so quick to dive into. The First Quartet, written in 1988, and the Second from 1991 both belong to the same modernist movement. However, the composer, who had matured over the years, also clearly softened his style. We only need to compare these quartets with Elementi Op. 19 No. 1 from 1966, which also appears on this album, to see how far he came: it is a piece of the purest contemporary avant-gardism. It is very possible that the minimalists, the "tintinnabulists" and even Shostakovitch – or indeed Bartók! – all left a mark on his writing from his later peiods. The Tippett Quartet are every bit as comfortable with this material as they are with Beethoven and perform the work with considerable skill. © SM/Qobuz

The Sonata for Two Violins is one of Henryk Górecki’s earliest acknowledged works—its contrasts, instrumental rivalries and sophisticated technique a worthy rounding-off of his formative period. The Third String Quartet with its evocative subtitle ‘…songs are sung’ represents a culmination of Górecki’s preoccupations with elaborate and emotive melodic shapes and closely intertwined harmonies, its final minutes recalling the beauty and poignancy of the composer’s Third Symphony. © Naxos
