Description: Son-of-Henryk gets a full disc to himself! Expressive, lyrical, often intensely beautiful in its many slow movements, sometimes redolent of his father's Eastern European minimalism but more often comfortably neo-romantic, Górecki's music is utterly approachable with the work adding clarinets to the string orchestra achieving a most winning extra dash of instrumental color (the Fragments have an ad lib. celesta part not used here which would have been even more colorful, one suspects). Piotr Plawner (violin), Jean-Marc Fesard, Roman Widaszek (clarinets), Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra Sopot; Wojciech Rajski.
