Paweł Łukaszewski (b. 1968) — Icon (2010) for organ

Paweł Łukaszewski (b. 1968) is one of the most important Polish composers of his generation. Active himself as a choral conductor in Warsaw, Łukaszewski has focused his compositional activities primarily on sacred choral music, and his choral music is known throughout the world. He has been championed particularly by the British conductor Stephen Layton, who has recorded several excellent Łukaszewski albums for the Hyperion label. Though most of his output is choral, Łukaszewski has written works for other instrumental forces, including a number of orchestral works. In 2011–12 he served as composer in residence for the Warsaw National Philharmonic. He is currently professor of composition at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and the Szczecin Academy of Art.

Icon (2010) is an austere piece that bears kinship to the music of Arvo Pärt and Henryk Górecki. The main theme is presented three times, each time increasing in both speed and volume. Chorale-like interludes are heard between these presentations.
