SORROW', led by Stetson, is a reimagining of Henryk Górecki'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. We all have those moments when we experience a piece of music that transforms us, and this was one of those moments for me," says Stetson. Over the years, I went on to listen to this record countless times, always determined to absorb every instance of it, to know it throughout and fully  . supported by 47 fans who also own SORROW - a reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony. No other album has scared me as much as this Trevor Kernan.

Avant-garde saxophonist Colin Stetson's reimagining of the famous symphony by the Polish composer Henryk Gorecki comes close to something by Explosions in the Sky or Godspeed You! Black Emperor. The story of Gorecki’s Symphony No. 3 (often called "Symphony of Sorrowful Songs") is one of a runaway success nobody, even its composer, understood. No one knew why, but critics, who by and large weren’t fans, offered theories; the piece was the lucky beneficiary of the early compact-disc boom, for instance.

Title appears on release as: Colin Stetson Presents SORROW a reimagining of Gorecki's 3rd Symphony. Released in gatefold sleeve with download coupon. Reimagining of Henryk Górecki's most famous piece, 'Symphony No 3' aka the ‘Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. Recorded and mixed at Figure 8 Studios in Brooklyn, NY. Symphony No. 3 Op. 36 by Henryk Gorecki. renewal rights assigned to Boosey & Hawkes, Inc. Arrangement made by permission for the exclusive use of Colin Stetson, 2015.

Górecki's work is itself a "reimagining" of medieval modalism, one that doesn't strictly adhere to its compositional formulae. Written in the seventies, it signaled Górecki's hard break with serialism. Instead, he composed a minimally harmonic work in three slow, repetitive movements accompanying texts whose themes were loss and grief.

Heart-wrenchingly beautiful and deeply moving. At times, downright scary. Highest recommendation.

Risky Strong Dromedary
One of the greatest compositions of all time brought into the 21st century. Jazz, Avant-Grade, Classical artist Colin Stetson has done a masterful job here. There are moments here as moving as anything that has gone before. I recommend Thom Jurek's review to those wishing to know more.

Ubrise
This interpretation of one of the most gorgeous pieces of modern classical music is stunning. The artist's reverence for the original work is obvious and he has done a wonderful job of adapting the arrangement to modern instruments without losing the emotion in the composition. The vocals are truly impressive and the quality of this recording is top notch. I would love to see this work performed live.

Dear jack n, I don't really understand your point. It's fair that you don't like the work of Stetson. I don't understand it, but we have different tastes I guess. However, it seems you feel that it's inappropriate that Stetson has created the work to start with. This is incomprehensible. Are you against interpretations of music?

Nanecele
this is a classic example of appropriation and theft. by doing this you are not only degrading and disrespecting the work but taking someone else's emotion and suffering and appropriating it for your own. the change of instruments lacks the grit and ferocity of the original. typical american/anglophone arrogance. why didn't colin just write his own piece? in my opinion stetson doesn't get the music. he waits til the composer dies and then ruins the music. the drums at the climax in movement 1 don't add anything, they detract. we are no longer overwhelmed by all the simultaneous lines in canon but just banging. write your own music.
