Krzysztof Penderecki’s Credo at the Szczecin Philharmonic Symphony Hall

During this year’s 27th edition of the Ludwig van Beethoven Easter Festival, The Szczecin Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jacek Kaspszyk himself, will present Krzysztof Penderecki’s penultimate composition, titled “Credo”.
Written for mixed choir, boys’ choir, symphony orchestra and five soloists, this monumental and moving work draws inspiration from Bach’s great oratorio works and Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis. Originally, Credo was intended to be a mass commissioned from the composer to grace two prestigious festivals: the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart and the Oregon Bach Festival. However, in the course of composing the first of its movements, the Credo (Latin: ‘confession of faith’, literally: ‘I believe’), it began to grow so much that it eventually became a work in its own right. The work consists of nine parts composed around Latin, Polish and German texts. Credo is the penultimate work in Penderecki’s oeuvre, clearly going back to the roots of great 19th-century symphonics.
