Artist: PENDERECKI, KRZYSZTOF
Title: The Manuscript Found in Saragossa
Format: LP
Label: Obuh
Country: Poland
Price: $36.00
"The score for Wojciech Jerzy Hass motion picture The Manuscript Found in Saragossa was composed in 1963 by Krzysztof Penderecki, who back then was an avant-garde artist of the tumultuous spirit in search of his own musical voice. It acquired its final shape in Warsaws Polish Radio Experimental Studio, then at its visionary best under the directorate of Josef Patkowski. The music for The Manuscript Found in Saragossa is a mind-bending mixture of uncontrollable electro-acoustics, sweeping and yet light baroque stylizations, daemonic soundings and grotesque illustrations. Released separately from the movie for the first time, after close to half of a century the score has lost none of its original magic. Quite the opposite -- drawing its vital energy from literary and cinematic phantoms, it appears to exert some sort of a demiurgic influence upon the listeners imagination, which suddenly becomes awakened to the memories of previously unrealized images, experiences and emotions. The manuscript found in Saragossa seems to have no end... and so, paraphrasing the pious monk, I license myself to call out to all travelers of imagination: Pasheko! Pasheko! In the Name of Our Lord I command you to listen and dream!" - Obuh. Taken from original masters and released for the first time. Limited to 500 numbered copies in a gatefold, solid sleeve. Never to be repressed on LP or CD.
