The Sonata for Two Violins is one of Henryk Górecki's earliest acknowledged works - its contrasts, instrumental rivalries and sophisticated technique a worthy rounding-off of his formative period. The Third String Quartet with its evocative subtitle '… songs are sung' represents a culmination of Górecki's preoccupations with elaborate and emotive melodic shapes and closely intertwined harmonies, its final minutes recalling the beauty and poignancy of the composer's Third Symphony (Naxos 8.550822). The First and Second String Quartets can be heard on Naxos 8.573919, 'a recording deserving of the very highest recommendation' (Gramophone).
