Interview with Witold Lutosławski

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 36 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: C Amirkhanian

Charles Amirkhanian interviews Polish composer and conductor, Witold Lutosławski. They discuss the political changes in Poland after the end of the Cold War and how that effected the ability to criticize the government and changed the way in which the arts were supported. Lutosławski also talks about his composition, “Mi-Parti”, which was to be performed by the San Francisco Symphony soon after this interview was recorded. Charles then quizzes the maestro about the role of emotions in music, his opinion of some lesser known Polish composers, and the importance of silence while composing. Lutosławski also discusses the difficulties he experienced as a composer in Poland during and soon after World War II. (from KPFA Folio)
