In relation to Ładnienia, Klave is a sister work. Mykietyn used many analgical methods here, and the aura of the music of both pieces show considerable similarity. Unusual and unique here is displaying the harpsichord as a microtonal instrument. Quarter tone nuances break through the universal way of hearing the instrument, simultaneously arousing subtle anxiety caused by the detuning. Despite the lack of a verbal layer, despite the composers secrecy, Klave is a piece suggestive of extra-musical content - and to a very strong degree. The title ''key'' can be understood as an allusion to the solo instrument; it is also a semantic hint - if it is a key, there must be a door. Personally, I read it as a representation of a border situation, a transition, a breakthrough, a herald of a major change.
It is also the gripping and often paralyzing fear that precedes it. Mykietyn does not create any illusions - he exposes and rejects them, putting artistic sincerity in the foreground.
