    Not a household name but I have a few of his recordings and I suspect others here will too. RIP.

    One of the big guns of Polish classical music. With Easter coming up, I think I'll give his St Luke Passion a spin.

    I have often played Polish Requiem or Utrenja around this time of the year. I shall probably play them again. Penderecki certainly composed many radical and gripping pieces of music. As big as he was in the art music world, it's the fact that his music was used in Hollywood films that always gets mentioned first. I have often wondered how many people who would never listen to this kind of stuff elsewhere have been exposed to his works through cinema - and perhaps even grown to like some of it.

    RIP.

    RIP, one of my favs. Will definitely play some stuff tonight.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    As if the music weren't intense enough, it's really a trip to follow the score:

    A great loss, he was very closely connected to my Hometown Münster.

    You can listen to lots of Penderecki (and Lutosławski and Górecki) here:

    By coincidence I pulled out Twin Peaks Livited Event Series Soundtrack from the shelf and noticed this Threnody To The Victims Of Hiroshima was used in one of the episodes:
