Katarzyna Szwed


Composer. Szwed’s oeuvre streams out of continuous rapture over the world. Her works are composed of blurry sound patches full of bright, glassy tones. Her narratives are focused and leisurely, and their dynamic scale ranges from the vicinity of audibility threshold through the rarely transgressed mezzoforte. Szwed’s highly sensual compositions are poetic, full of noble lyricism, and deeply permeated by a sense of contemplation. (KS)
