Gorecki’s Symphony No. 3 Symphony of Sorrowful Songs owes its mass appeal to the powerfully evocative second movement – the setting of an eighteen year old girl’s prayer scratched on the wall of a Gestapo prison in 1944. It is an extraordinary piece of music which completely envelops you in the atmosphere it creates and depth of feelings it engenders. An experience not to be missed.
