I can’t believe I never told you about
Henryk
Gorecki
. His Symphony Number 3 is devastatingly haunting and
beautiful. Once you hear it, you’ll probably remember hearing it before.
It’s one of those pieces of music they use in movies (like
Fearless and Wit) in the epiphany scene, when it all
becomes clear.\
My friend Sean introduced me to it in High School, and now I listen to
it when I need to mellow out, or am feeling like there’s nowhere else to
turn. Dawn Upshaw’s pained soprano, the strings in the background – it
just makes life worth living again. Go get the version with Dawn Upshaw
as the soloist. There are others out there, but none of them match the
beauty of that one.
