Smolka, Martin (*1959)

With each new work, Smolka sets out "with the feeling that I have to learn, or even discover, everything from scratch all over again". What is structurally conspicuous in his music are moments of insistence, of exciting relentlessness, of near obsession. In the course of his development, one notices an increase in stringency and clarity as well as a stronger contrasting of opposites. (Positionen)
