53rd International Festival of Contemporary Music
73 composers from all over the world, 87 performances and 26 news. As
usual, among the event there will be installations, conventions and
Two main areas of investigation will be part of the Festival program: on the one hand, futurist music,
or musique concrète if you prefer, or even electronic music, until the
most recent technological developments; on the other hand, ethnic and world music
in the widest historical and geographical significance, that is music
that is born when strictly connected to the body and to the earth.
On October 27th at the Teatro alle Tese the Hungarian composer György Kurtág will receive the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement.
