• Górecki memento/1: photo 2002

As we’re coming up to to third anniversary of Górecki’s death and the 80th of his birth, I’m going to dig out some scattered mementos over the coming weeks.  Here for starters is a photograph taken in 2002, I believe, by his (then) principal contact at Boosey & Hawkes, Susan Bamert.  It was taken in the Warsaw flat of a mutual friend and colleague and was used in the recently published Górecki. Portret w Pamięci.  Despite some slight damage to the print in the intervening years, it captures the genuine warmth and affection that we felt for each other.
