The Festival revolves around great personalities of music, their thinking and their musical practices, in dialogue with authors of the most stringent contemporaneity. The Lions of this edition see the career tribute to Luis de Pablo, a decisive composer in musical renewal in Spain, and the Silver Lion to Raphaël Cendo, founder of aesthetic movement, the "saturationism", which revolutionized the way of conceiving and writing music attracting many young composers.
