Panufnik Sinfonia Sacra Martinù Sen o minulosti (Dream of the Past) Martinù Memorial to Lidice Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 1 'Winter Daydreams' An exciting and thought-provoking programme of Slavonic orchestral music. Tchaikovsky regarded this piece as one of his finest -‘sin of my sweet youth’! Panufnik's Sinfonia sacra is a thrilling work based on an ancient Polish hymn The two pieces by Martinù reflect very different periods in his extraordinary life. Dream of the Past is an early work reflecting the composer's interest in impressionism. Memorial to Lidice sums up his anguish at the Nazi's total destruction of a small Bohemian town and is dedicated ‘to innocent victims of genocide'.
