Krzysztof Penderecki, who comes from Dębica, is the most famous Polish contemporary composer. It is to him that we owe the avant-garde songs in the spirit of sonorism – works that make musicians extract sounds from traditional instruments by non-traditional methods, such as knocking, creaking or rumbling after a box. One of the outstanding achievements in this trend is “Passion according to St. Łukasz ‘, which brought him worldwide publicity.
