Great modern classical soulful music,
This review is from: Górecki - Symphony No 3; Olden Style Pieces (Audio CD)
I have owned this recording for years and keep coming back to it. In some ways, being titled "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs", it's the Leonard Cohen of classical music but it's stunningly beautiful, particularly the 2nd movement. It's repetitive and sombre but moving and Poignant. Written in 1976, it's an fine example of how good modern classical music can be. It's up there with Tippett and Taverner. Listening to it this evening, I just had to post about it.
