On the fourth of June KLANG focuses on Polish music. By 2018, it is 100 years since Poland became independent, and so the festival is collaborating with the Polish embassy and the Danish Cultural Institute in Poland this year to bring Polish music to Denmark. Orkiestra Muzyki Nowej plays three works of younger Polish composers and the soloist at the concert is Jakob Kullberg, who has a close relationship with the ensemble and composers' music.

Wolek's work is, as the title reveals, an investigation of the resistance, friction that arises when creating art ... and when creating sound on a cello.

The cryptic title on Kwiecinski's work, a6 (+1), makes sense when you see the number of musicians on the stage. It is rhythmically distinctive and figurative music.

Lumen is a unit of measurement for light and the title of Sniady's work. Her music has a silent sensuality and willingness to explore instruments and expressions that can get, yes, almost force the listener to spit ears.

Polish ensembles have always had a good ear to Nørgård's music and he has visited the country often. He is also one of Kullberg's close friends and collaborators, so playing the play of Norges concert Remembering Child seems to be a natural round of the concert.
