New Version of Heart Brightening Songs

"The best works heard here were Pawel Buczynski’s "Nocturne" /.../ and Elzbieta Sikora’s "Heart Brightening Songs" for soprano and 5 instruments, which were atmospheric and nicely scored, with the final song the most oustanding"
Bain Murray, "Warsaw Automn 1978" Polish Music 4/1978

"Heart brightening Songs" is a fair sample of the artist’s capabilities. Its underlying aesthetic ideology could be termed a profession of authenticity, an antithesis of artificiality, ostentation, superficial flippancy that seems deceptively innovative. /.../ Their (the songs) exquisite simplicity could not fail but captivate the audience."
Tadeusz Kaczynski, Ruch Muzyczny N° 11, 1976

"It is "Nocturne" a vividly defined piece of a deep and expressionistic sonority." Magdalena Radziejowska "Music Galery" , Polish Music 2/1977

"Nocturne which, with unrestrained freedom typical, on the one hand,,of the collage technique, on the other- pf the aesthetics of grotesque, set together the elements almost purposely incoherent : "vanguard" vocalism based on susurration, and fluent, banal vocalizes, sublime, biblical text and aggressive interventions of rough sound blocks." Wladyslaw Malinowski "Lobo Ensemble and Kew Grupe" , "Ruch Muzyczny" n°9 1978
