Concerto for Orchestra by Witold Lutosławski marks a creative highpoint in the composer's mature stage and the starting point of a radical aesthetic breakaway, evinced in later works. The concerto is filled with references to Polish folklore, with an intricate Baroque-style counterpoint as if it were an immense recaptured concerto grosso.

Program

Just as Lutosławski drew inspiration from Poland's songs, Gustav Mahler turned to the collection of traditional German poems and songs Des Knaben Wunderhorn: Alte deutsche Lieder (The Boy's Magic Horn: Old German Songs), compiled in 1805, to compose his song cycle of the same name. Between 1892 and 1898, a total of twelve songs were arranged by the composer. Not only did he transform them into one of his major works, but he also turned to them time and time again for his symphonies.
