It seems that most recent music falls into the "Post-Modern" category - ie, very melodic and somewhat simple, geared for movies. Lutoslawski was a true "modern" composer, and his music is quite refreshing. It's not simple, or "relaxing" but is moving, driving and ultimately enjoyable. The violin soloist explores the range of his instrument and takes you with him. I'd heard some Lutoslawski on my local classical music station beforehand so when I saw this album, I jumped on it and am glad I did. The music station mentioned that some South American country commissioned Lutoslawski to write a national anthem (or something like that), and were quite disappointed - I can't imagine anything more hilarious!Was this review helpful?
