Krzysztof Penderecki. The Musical Score and the Garden. Music in Drawing, Garden in Music
In 2003, Maria Anna Potocka shot the film The Musical Score and the Garden in Lusławice with Krzysztof Penderecki. In it, Penderecki discusses how he goes about composing and discusses his graphic method, which allowed him to sketch a symphony on one sheet of paper. He compares his musical experience to a garden, and the park he created in Lusławice to the form of a symphony. The exhibition offers an insight into his ideas about music and garden.
It encompasses private sketches – so-called pre-scores – as well as drawings of concepts for the garden. The second part of the exhibition consists of portraits of Krzysztof Penderecki by Beata Stankiewicz, Marcin Maciejowski and Bartek Materka, photographs by Marian Eile from the series A Return Visit: Dali at the Pendereckis, and photographic documentation from the park in Lusławice by Marek Bebłot and Bartek Barczyk.
Krzysztof Penderecki (1933–2020) was a Polish composer and conductor. In 1958 he graduated from the State Higher School of Music (now the Academy of Music) in Kraków with a degree in Music Composition. Over the course of more than 60 years, the artist has created over 150 works, which differ in terms of compositional techniques, genres and forms. Krzysztof Penderecki is the author of operas, symphonies and orchestral pieces, instrumental concertos, choral settings for religious texts, as well as chamber and instrumental pieces.
