Domino is proud to present Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs) performed by Beth Gibbons and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki. The performance took place at The National Opera Grand Theatre in Warsaw on November 29th 2014. In advance of the concert, Beth Gibbons undertook an intense preparation process, including tackling the challenge of learning the original text (and the emotional weight it carries) without speaking the mother language.
For this special event they team up with award-winning, long-time GTB and Portishead collaborator John Minton to produce a film which examines and celebrates over a century of Bristol, captured on film by local people.
If last year’s Metropolis was an epic expressionist vision of dystopia, Bristopolis offers an intimate contemporary parallel: a poetic visual essay and an abstract urban history, using archive footage filtered through John Minton’s creative vision, and organically wedded to one of Bristol’s most famous jazz exports – the inventive, uncategorisable Get The Blessing.
