By Andrew C. Mitchell TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 19 Aug. 2013
The Litany to the Virgin Mary (1933) makes an interesting filler for this CD of Szymanowski choral music. I wonder what it means. However I am very sure that The 3rd Symphony (1914 - 1916) and the Stabat Mater of (1925-6) represent two pinnacles of the work of Karol Szymanowski. The symphony inhabits the worlds of eastern mysticism and late romanticism while the Stabat mater represents the religious impulse based on old Polish Roman Catholicism, hymns(Swiety Boze{Holy God}, and Gorzkie zale {Bitter lamentations}) and a study of the work of Palestrina.
The symphony goes under the title 'Song of the Night' - it is approached through ecstasy and the poetry of the whirling dervishes. Sir Simon Rattle and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and CBSO Chorus rouse to tumults of immense shrieking, tearing climaxes in the opening and closing sections. But also there are lovely opportunities for wind soloists and violin - the heights are explored. The tenor soloist carries a lot of the meaning. The sound world is of Wagner, Richard Strauss, Debussy and Skryabin. The middle section carries whirling patterns of oriental dance.
The Stabat Mater is in six wonderful movements. It has as its basis the pain of the loss of Szymanowski's sister's daughter. Szymanowski comforted his sister at the beginning of 1925. The structure of the piece is beautifully balanced- movement 1 with 6, movement 2 with 5. The opening movement has the grieving mother in words sung by the soprano soloist with the female voices of the choir. In the second movement the male voice with SATB choir explores the agony of the mother seeing the foul death.The third movement has soprano and alto soloists and womens' voices. I particularly adore the 'a capella' singing of the fourth movement with SATB and solos for soprano and alto.
