One of the most esteemed composers of our day, Krzysztof Penderecki has evolved and changed over the decades of his acclaimed career. Perhaps best known for his searing 1961 Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima (scored for 52 strings, full of tone clusters, glissandos, and never-before-heard effects that are unearthly and shattering).
