2015 remastered reissue; originally released in 2008. Kompleta is the debut album by Polish composer Stefan Wesołowski (born 1985), composed in 2006 and originally released on the Gusstaff label in 2008, when Wesołowski was 21 years old. Kompleta portrays a universe deeply influenced by sacred music and offers clear, direct compositions and liturgical chants as powerful vectors for emotion. Performed by Wesolowski himself accompanied by Maja Sieminska, the album also features electronic arrangements by composer Michal Jacaszek, marking the beginning of Wesołowski and Jacaszek's productive collaborative relationship. A tangible spirituality emanates from these nine tracks, providing a contemplative, introspective experience for listeners. Kompleta is mainly based on strings (violins, viola, cello), but also manages to distance itself from traditional compositional methods by including subtle electronic touches to help anchor the work in a resolutely progressive dynamic. An ideal gateway to those universes where elegance and intensity are key. This edition is illustrated with new photographs by Françis Meslet.
