Good Night, op. 63
Gorecki, H

The Polish composer Henryk Mikolaj Gorecki, born in 1933, readily acknowledges the influence of national, religious, and folk traditions, both upon the avant-garde works which made his name in the 1950s and the recent scores which have established him as one the most popular living composers.

The London Sinfonietta s Response Weekend of March 1989 proved to be a turning point for the composer s reputation in the West, and Gorecki responded to news of the death of the group s Artistic Director, Michael Vyner, later that year with the composition of Good Night, a requiem for soprano, alto flute, 3 tam-tams and piano. The voice enters only in the last of the three movements with a setting of Shakespeare s line form Hamlet 'Good night flights of angels sing thee to the rest'. The dying resonance of the three tam-tams heralds the work s coda in which the name of Michael Vyner is enciphered on the piano. The score was completed in March 1990 and the finale was included in the London Sinfonietta s Concert for Michael Vyner at the Royal Opera House in May 1990.
