Examples of "aleatorism"
Lutosławski's called this technique of his mature period "limited
". This controlled freedom given to the individual musicians is contrasted with passages where the orchestra is asked to synchronise their parts; the score for these passages is notated conventionally using bars (measures) and time signatures.
Patterns: personal vision of his sources ("Andino I-Andino IV, Laúdico"); sound-mass polyphony ("Entropía, Arcaica");
("Fibris, Ramificaciones Temporales"); formal research ("Obsesiva, La, Melodías de Cámara"); and unavoidably the meeting point of patterns ("24.5 Preludios for piano", the "Atonal Fugues" and the opera "El Árbol de los Pájaros"). In that work the plot stems from the interaction music - architecture.
In his compositions, Rafał Stradomski seeks new solutions in the domain of construction rather than new effects in sound. In some works, he employs the serialism or dodecaphonic technique, though not treating them rigoristicall. He draws on the experience of the
and uses elements of jazz, combining them with different composing techniques, which he has invented (often for the use of a single work). In 1984-2001 he organised concerts (of contemporary music as well) at the Warsaw Music Society. He is also a performing artist; he played old and contemporary music on the oboe and now he plays it on the piano.
Many passages in the Symphony no. 3 employ Lutosławski's by-then well developed technique which he called "limited
", in which the individual players in the orchestra are each asked to play their phrase or repeated fragment "in their own time" — rhythmically independent from the other musicians. During these passages very little synchronisation is specified: events that are coordinated include the simultaneous entrances of groups of instruments, the abrupt end of some episodes, and some transitions to new sections. By this method the composer retains control of the symphony's architecture and the realisation of the performance, while simultaneously creating complex and somewhat unpredictable polyphony.
The String Quartet has a duration of approximately 24 minutes and is composed in two movements: "Introduction" and "Main Movement." Lutosławski described the piece in the score program notes, writing, "In this Quartet I have sought to develop and enlarge the technique employed in the two preceding works, "Jeux Venitiens" and "Trois Poèmes d’Henri Michaux" the technique of what I call controlled
. It employs the element of chance for the purpose of rhythmic and expressive enrichment of the music without limiting in the least the full ability of the composer to determine the definitive form of the work."
