Henryk Górecki, one of Poland’s most revered contemporary composers, gained wider popularity in 1992, when a recording of his Symphony No. 3 was released 15 years after its completion, achieving explosive success. The composer has said: “Perhaps people find something they need in this piece of music…. Somehow I hit the right note, something they were missing. I feel that I instinctively knew what they needed.” Currently, his Symphony No. 3 has sold more than a million copies.

Mario Brunello was the first Italian to win the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (1986). Brunello has appeared as a soloist with renowned orchestras and conductors such as Valery Gergiev, Riccardo Muti, Vladimir Yurovsky, Claudio Abbado and Ton Koopman. He often performs as a conducting soloist, and has also played chamber music with Gidon Kremer, Martha Argerich, Frank Peter Zimmermann and Yuri Bashmet. Brunello is widely known for his interdisciplinary programmes combining light, fine arts, text and philosophy.
