'Listening to classical music is like reading philosophy books, not everybody has to do it. Music is not for everybody.' – Krzysztof Penderecki (1933-2020)
An avant-garde composer who exploded onto the classical music world in the 1960s with works like Polymorphia, St. Luke’s Passion and Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima, Penderecki is considered the godfather of the modern horror movie score, according to Rolling Stone Magazine: His pieces have been deployed in The Shining, The Exorcist, Shutter Island and numerous David Lynch projects, including Twin Peaks: The Return, Inland Empire and Wild at Heart, each utilizing Penderecki’s spasmodic, shrieking strings to add surprise and dread to their respective scenes.
