Following high profile collaborations with Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead and Aphex Twin, Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki is melding classical Polish music with trip-hop with the help of Portishead's Beth Gibbons.
Beth's first musical work in 11 years since the release of Portishead’s Third, Symphony No. 3 - Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs, will see the acclaimed vocalist debut her singing in a new style – soprano, as compared to her usual contralto – as well as a new language.
Conductor Krzysztof Penderecki has been hailed as Poland’s greatest living composer, and conductor. His music was introduced to a wider audience through its use in soundtracks of films such as The Shining and The Exorcist.
This filmed performance also celebrates Henryk Górecki’s seminal work. The concert film was directed by Michał Merczyński and spans 60 minutes.
The film will only receive two screenings; once on 19 April at 4:30pm and once on 04 May at 5:30pm at The Projector. Get your tickets here.
