“It may sound kind of obvious, but one of the perks of working at this station is constantly being exposed to new music. This week, we are celebrating Polish music from the past 50 years or so in our Muzyka Nowa festival, and I’m happy to say that aside from the heavy hitters (cough, Penderecki, Górecki, cough) this music is basically all completely new to me! Not just new, but both awesome AND new. Yay. So now that we’ve established my relative ignorance with regards to new-music from Poland, I will admit that I’ve received a TON of help from people more well-informed than myself (Polish people! And non-Polish people!) and this festival is shaping up splendidly.

There’s so much fun stuff this week! We’re having not one but TWO immersive days of Polish programming; special guest host, composer Jakub Ciupinski; EXCLUSIVE recordings of the highlights of over a decade of The Warsaw Autumn festival, music by everyone from Witold Lutoslawski to Paweł Szymański, and so much more. If you’ve ever been curious about the world of Polish new-music, boy howdy, you’re gonna want to tune in!

So join me this week as we explore Polish music together! This is the kind of thing you will only find here on Q2 Music.”
