Performed by The Polish Sinfonia Iuventus Orchestra. "The Italian word 'adagio', which was chosen by Krzysztof Penderecki for the title of his Symphony No. 4 has some obvious music connotations for everyone. It is worth reminding here however, that -- the word of great, going back to Petrarch's times tradition; the word alive till now creating more and more new meanings, phrases and idioms. This adverb means first of all a slowly performed activity which takes place without haste.... In Penderecki's Symphony No. 4 the music seems to possess this maturity on a perfect level, there is certain dignified celebration of content, inner focus."
