Listen to Poland, a country with an extraordinary musical heritage (and that would hold true if the only composers who came from there were Chopin and Lutoslawski). Starting January 16 and running through January 22, Q2, the online radio arm of WQXR, is featuring music from Poland: Muzyka Nowa.

Heavy on 20th century music, the highlights will include the broadcast of last November’s Gorecki Memorial concert from Le Poisson Rouge, and excerpts from the UNSOUND festival, an annual exploration of the boundaries of contemporary acoustic and electronic music. Tune in for some aural armchair traveling.
