Penderecki's Winterreise

Composer Krzysztof Penderecki and horn soloist Radovan Vlatković discuss 'Winterreise' (October 2015)


In October 2015 the London Philharmonic Orchestra performed the UK premiere of the horn concerto 'Winterreise' by Krzysztof Penderecki.   The composer conducted the performance, with the work's dedicatee, Radovan Vlatković as the solo horn.  Composer and soloist discussed the work in a pre-concert talk hosted by writer and broadcaster Oliver Soden, in which Penderecki disclosed his long-term tree planting project, as well as the reasons for naming his concerto 'Winterreise', Winter's Journey.
