His 1960 avant-garde Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima for string orchestra brought him to international attention, and this success was followed by acclaim for his choral St. Luke Passion. Both these works exhibit novel compositional techniques.
However, Penderecki adopted a neo-Romantic style that has dominated his music from the late '70s onward, and many of his pieces were composed for strings or small orchestra and last under 10 minutes. This 2008 album by Penderecki and the Varsovia Symphony Orchestra explores some of his music from 1963 to 2005. There is one example of music from his avant-garde period, namely the Intermezzo for 24 strings (1973), which is a study of close-knit contrapuntal repetitions of short figures

The composer's powerful tribute and its breakthrough contribution to contemporary trends in Classical Music today. It was the third year of a new era in Polish music, ever since the Warsaw Autumn festival gave young musicians the opportunity to discover music on both sides of the Iron Curtain. It was around this time that Polish composers began forging their own response to musical developments in the West (specifically regarding twelve-tone composition, serialism and pointillism), the result of which would be identified as the so-called 'polnische Schule', or Polish School of composition.
Krzysztof Penderecki is one of the best known contemporary Polish composers today. His name at the time became almost synonymous with the Polish (and not only Polish) avant-garde
