Listen: Jonny Greenwood vs. Krzysztof Penderecki: 48 Responses to Polymporphia

Jonny Greenwood collaborated with Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, a preview is now available.

Listen to 48 Responses to Polymporphia via NPR. The album will be out on March 13th through NoneSuch. Get the album at Amazon.

The new album pairing works by Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki and the works they inspired by composer/guitarist Jonny Greenwood, due out on March 13, is featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered. Producer Robin Hilton exclaims of Greenwood’s 48 Responses to Polymporphia: “You hear that, and I think: everything created by a synthesizer is just so irrelevant and boring now. You hear something that real and organic and knowing that it could be performed live with these string instruments, I mean, that’s amazing to me.” The Guardian‘s Tom Service spoke with both composers about the project and says of that piece: “48 Responses isn’t just a good piece for a composer who is more used to the studio, it is a dazzlingly imaginative, gripping and novel work, full stop.”

  • Sounds mesmerizing, like the soundtrack to a film I want to see. I wonder if any of this will turn up in Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master (or whatever that film end sup being called…)
