“Warsaw Autumn” is the only internationally-acclaimed festival in Poland
that is fully dedicated to contemporary music.
The defining term of the 58th Warsaw Autumn’s programme is dynamistatic. This neologism hints at the ambiguity of the crucial musical notion of dynamics; a paradoxical situation of lasting and moving. What we can observe in selected compositions is the “music of stopped time” on the one hand and “music of action” on the other.
