• Górecki UK premiere, Liverpool, 3.11.16

Further to my earlier post today, the first broadcast of Henryk Górecki’s Tristan Postludes and Chorale (Polish Radio 2, 18.30 UK time) precedes the live UK premiere of the same work tomorrow by one hour. The UK performance takes place on Thursday, 3 November, in the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, with the RLPO conducted by Patrycja Pieczara. So aficionados within reach have the opportunity to hear two ‘first’ performances of the work in one evening.
Like the three other posthumously premiered works, Tristan Postludes and Chorale has been realised by Górecki’s son Mikołaj and was first performed in Warsaw on 16 October this year. The programme note for the RLPO performance has been written by Richard Powell and may be found at the RLPO’s Programme Notes Online.
My thanks to Michał Kubicki for alerting me to both of tomorrow’s events.
