A Symphony for Winds

Queensland Symphony Orchestra Studio

A Symphony for Winds image

Ever had the urge to chat with your friends about a great piece of music? Jonny Greenwood felt it too – but he spoke through the language of music in his 48 Responses to Polymorphia. His source material is Penderecki’s nail-biting Polymorphia – so eerie it was hand-picked for cinema’s most frightening soundtracks including The Exorcist and The Shining. You’ll hear its essence in Greenwood’s take, which is a little less terrifying and features beats reminiscent of his Radiohead days. Our program also includes Strauss’ quaint Symphony for Winds, though behind its innocent charm was a composer living through the perils of war.
