Henryk Mikolaj Górecki made his reputation as a leader of Polish avant-garde in the late 1950s * From 1970s his music employed monumental structures built from simple modal materials * Works inspired by folk and religious influences * Emotional power and clarity of music has attracted a wide public following, boosted by record breaking sales of discs on the Nonesuch label * Much-loved choral works include Totus Tuus (1987) * Music is favoured by many distinguished choreographers * Works performed by world's leading orchestras, Kronos Quartet, London Sinfonietta, Schoenberg Ensemble, and soprano Dawn Upshaw

Works by Henryk Mikolaj Górecki include:
Old Polish Music (1967-69) for brass and strings

"Górecki is meticulous in even the tiniest of compositional details, and this rare and powerful sense of colour and timing places his music in a rather special category." — CD Review
