Product Details

Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Colin Stetson is an American saxophonist and multi-reedist who has collaborated with an number of influential indie rock acts such as Arcade Fire, Bon Iver and Bell Orchestre. This 2016 release Sorrow, led by Stetson, is a reimagining of Henryk Grecki's most famous piece, performed by a 12-piece band including Arcade Fire's Sarah Neufeld, Saltland's Rebecca Foon, Greg Fox of Liturgy, Megan Stetson and more and recorded in 2015 in Brooklyn, New York. Symphony No 3, composed by Polish composer Grecki in 1977, became one of the biggest sellers of classical music of all time, when Elektra Nonesuch's 1992 recording of the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs was released. The recording eventually sold over one million copies and topped classical charts in the USA and Britain. This popular acclaim did not generate wide interest in Grecki's other works, and he pointedly resisted the temptation to repeat earlier success, or compose for commercial reward.
