Henryk Gorecki - Kleines Requiem for a Polka

Gorecki (1933-2010) was a Polish composer who catapulted to fame in 1992 when a recording of his third symphony became an unrivaled worldwide commercial success, selling more than a million copies. I have selected his Kleines Requiem for a Polka, for piano and thirteen instruments, Op. 66, from 1993. Relevant links below.
