KRZYSZTOF KOMEDA
"Nighttime, Daytime Requiem"


NIGHTIME, DAYTIME REQUIEM
This piece is dedicated to the memory of John Coltrane, and was composed in response to the news of the death of that great musician. The recording on this CD dates from November 1967 and was commissioned by Polish Radio. The original version was about five minutes longer, but was cut to 22 min. 50 sec. by the producer and engineer so that it would fit onto one side of an LP - part of a four-LP set released in 1974 through the efforts of Komeda’s wife, who did the editing work.
DON KICHOT I CZAROWNICA (DON QUIXOTE AND THE WITCH)
Both pieces were written for the jazz and poetry record ‘Meine Susse Europaische Heimat’, recorded in Germany in 1967 thanks to the efforts of jazz writer Joachim E. Berendt. Both were named after poems: ‘Don Quixote’ by Stanis³aw Grochowiak and ‘The Witch’ by Kazimiera Illakowiczowna.
BALLAD FOR BERNT
This is a ballad from the soundtrack for Polanski’s ‘Knife in the Water’. Komeda dedicated it to the Swedish saxophonist Bernt Rosengren, who took part in the 1962 recording at the composer’s special request. This was the first, and probably only, time in the early 1960s when agreement was given for a western musician to take part in the soundtrack recording for a Polish film. The version on this CD was recorded in 1967.
