Maybe I will be banal... But since my words muddy this Sound Structure, I limit myself to mentioning how Preisner is one of the very rare contemporaries still alive, who in the next millennia of humanity, will be remembered as such and which to the greatest composers of all times. We will have a little bit of judgment as what we have today between Wagner and Handel, so distant yet so immortal. One day Preisner and Beethoven could be archived and listened to as equals, and this Requiem for My Friend will be his 9th Symphony.
I can't say anything else that this is my contemporary composition, together only with Penderecki's 7th Symphony (Seven Gates of Jerusalem), which is at the top of all the history of music. He personally rules among the great and the eternal of universal western culture.
This is in fact one of those universal works; archetypal communications; of transcendental harmony, and of psychoemotional hierophany. It has something similar to what Antonio Moresco is in literature (the most cosmic and innovative writer ever, like people like Dante or Joyce, but still alive).
Only that symphony by Penderecki, for me, can match (and perhaps even surpass this Requiem). Speaking of course of composers still alive... Yet such an already "classical" as well as comprehensive sound magniloquence, even if they were even more important and brilliant, not even sacred monsters like Ligeti, Cage, Berio, Stockhausen, etc... It has in itself something much more modern and totalizing... (a sort of Symphony "Of a Thousand" of the 21st century).
I also love John Tavener, Arvo Pärt, Cacciapaglia, Karl Jenkins, Pelecis, Edgerton, Subotnick, Fulvio Caldini and the Roomful of Teeth (on a very personal level💕) of living contemporaries of a similar level.
Oh well, btw, I talked too much..!!
(or something similar, having also been used in one of the most sublime scenes ever made, in that equally high masterpiece which is The Tree of Life, similar as a philosophical and evocative combination with 2001 by Kubrick, who used the Requiem of Ligeti)🙅🏼‍♀️

Love.... 1:03..... beautiful ending for the masterpiece!!!

Unbelievably beautiful.Unlike most requiems that are so starkly morose and just drag you down into the depths ," Requiem for a friend" offers the listener an uplifting experience ; rays of light,happy remembrances and hope.

Tak jak powiedział Dostojewski. Rolą sztuki jest zbliżanie człowieka ku Bogu. Ta muzyka to czyni. Niestety dzisiaj wszyscy wolą słuchać Popka czy Quenobafide czy jakoś tak. A koledzy w szkole i nawet nauczycielka na języku polskim ( która nie znała ani Kieślowskiego, ani Preisnera) śmieli się,że czegoś takiego słucham. No cóż...

Zbigniew Preisner is for me the modern contemporain bach or mozart. not only it is good, his music have a substance that 's transmitting a powerful energy. its a masterpiece. that an achievement . our sensations is energy, colors are energy, feeling can be felt or can be explain by color. color is feeling, music is feeling.. thats all energy . this music is perfect it goes to the the prime source of our powerful energie wich is our deepest feellings.. something like that )

¡Horrible! ¡Doloroso! ¿A quién se le ocurre asociar la bellísima música del Reqeuim de Preisner a su amigo, con seres y monstruos alados como demonios? Hace unos 10 o más años que un amigo mío me obsequiara el CD con tan maravilloso tesoro musical, y desde entonces, cada vez que lo escucho, en verdad vuela mi espíritu a un paraíso, producto de esa música en mí, que me deleita indescriptiblemente. De pronto, la misma orquesta, las mismas voces, los mismos efectos, sin consideración alguna, sin ningún permiso, me trasladan a cuevas, sierras y nubes repletas de figuras dantescas. ¿De dónde semejante insulto?
One of most boring things I made myself to listen.
