COLIN STETSON - SORROW, a reimagining of Gorecki`s 3rd Symphony

September 2019

„Consciously or unconsciously, it’s more than likely that most folk will have a certain level of awareness of Henryk Gorecki’s 3rd Symphony, or as it’s often referred to, ‘Symphony of Sorrowful Songs’. There are a couple of reasons for this: firstly since its re-release by Elektra-Nonesuch in 1992, it sold over a million copies, and secondly it has seeped into popular culture through various guises, be it on soundtracks like Terrance Malik’s To the Wonder, or as sampled by Lamb on their 1996 record ‘Gorecki’. Through the very fact there are a million physical or digital copies knocking around, and its use in other artistic ventures, mean it has hung in the air for many years now finding its way into the collective consciousness.

You’ve gotta hand it to Colin Stetson: to take on a much-loved piece is one thing, but when that music happens to be from the often rather haughty and lofty classical world - well - that takes balls. In Stetson’s case, he has gathered together his massive bass saxophone (amongst other reed instruments), a collection of extremely talented friends, and somehow managed not to let the weight of expectation asphyxiate what has turned out to be an astonishing re-working of this, already, transcendental music.“
