Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, or Symphony No. 3, is a symphony in three parts that meditates on motherhood and loss. The first movement is the Virgin Mary’s lament. The second is a message on the wall of a concentration camp. The third movement is a mother searching for her lost son. As with other works such as Satyagraha and Akhnaten, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs is performed in its original Polish with English subtitles, as it is poetically rather than narratively driven.
