Choros I per strumenti ad arco

Op. 20

Countries of delivery:
  • Cat. no. 5665


Choros I reveals Górecki's predilection for using old forms and transparent musical structures. While the ''choral'' way of treating the instruments used for the realization of this work (4 groups of strings: violins, violas, cellos and double-basses entering in alternation) is logical and clear, the work is characterized by a certain complication as far as the notation and performance are concerned. Limited pitches and persistently repeated motivic-rhythmical formulas resembling ostinato as well as the aleatory character of rhythmical values (introduced in some sections of the work) contribute to the fact that Choros I represents the tendency, which can be described as musical ''abstract art'', analogous to e.g. abstract painting.
