*****
Penderecki's Second Symphony has tunes and a dramatic programme. That may seem like an obvious thing to write about a symphony, but the Second confirmed Penderecki's new direction, backwards into the future, moving away from his atonal origins to a more accessible form. The music is still complex, but now it echoes in your head the next day. The Fourth is slightly more abstract, perhaps less hopeful, more to do with hopes thwarted and things unresolved, as you might expect from an artist working in Poland at the time. They are both symphonies you listen to many times and Wit, as conductor and Penderecki student, is well placed to bring out the best in the music and the orchestra. Hightly recommended.
