Muzyka Nowa: A Weeklong Celebration of Contemporary Polish Music

An Online Festival of Special Programs and Events at Monday, January 16 through Sunday, January 22

Inspired by the outpouring of local and international attention around the recent one-year anniversary of Henryk Mikołaj Górecki’s passing, Q2 Music, WQXR’s online station for contemporary classical music, offers an in-depth exploration of Polish contemporary music. From 20th Century greats Lutoslawski, Penderecki and Gorecki, to lesser-known and emerging Polish composers such as Andrzej Krzanowski, Krzysztof Wołek, and Aleksander Nowak, “MUZYKA NOWA” will provide a week’s worth of wonderful Polish music.

“MUZYKA NOWA” will consist of blocks of contemporary Polish music, two 24-hour marathons of new music, live Warsaw Autumn Festival recordings, composer-curated shows, and a webcast of In Memoriam Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, recorded live at Greenwich Village’s (Le) Poisson Rouge, along with curated playlists.
