The eponymous piece, written for its current performer Jakob Kullberg, derives its title from the composer’s belief that creating a work of art calls for friction on both the conceptual and purely personal level. Krzysztof Wołek’s entire creative career to date has in fact depended on the clash and friction of various influences and expressive means. ‘I tend to get inspired by an ever-wider palette of music and of art in general, not necessarily related to the so-called Western classical music or art traditions. I also very frequently derive inspiration from the achievements of the human mind and scientific discoveries,’ Wołek admits. He creates works for various acoustic lineups, electroacoustic music, multimedia installations, as well as initiating interdisciplinary projects comprising elements of video art, dance, etc.

The other two concertos on VARIOUS FORMS OF FRICTION, released in PORTRAITS series, are Motions, Stases for piano and large ensemble (with Małgorzata Walentynowicz as soloist) and Open/Close for bass clarinet and large ensemble (soloist: Michele Marelli). The soloists perform here with Ensemble OMN under Szymon Bywalec.
