Composer's Note

Once, we had a joint conception to create a concert telling a life story. The premiere was planned to take place on the Acropolis in Athens. It was intended to be a large event, a hybrid of a mystery play and an opera. Krzysztof Kieslowski would be the director, Krzysztof Piesiewicz was responsible for the script, and I was planning to compose the music.

We thought it might be the first of a series of musical performances, to be developed in various interesting places around the world in the next few years. But it was life that authored a different ending: Krzysztof Kieslowski died in March of 1996.

The first part of Requiem for My Friend is meant as a farewell to Krzysztof Kieslowski. I dedicate this music to him. Zbigniew Preisner

        I like the size of the score.
        The formatting for this score is awful. Weird mistakes with slurs and other articulations. The margins are my biggest complaint with this score. The left margin text get cut off by the spiral bind and the right margins are close to an 1" with nothing but wasted space. I would also expect a little better quality bind for close to $75 - I can coil bind my own music in my home office.
