51st International Festival of Contemporary Music

 
The 51st edition of the International Festival of Contemporary Music ends a four-year pathway under the direction of Giorgio Battistelli, who has focalised the program on the figure of the composer in all his guises, underlining their creative and communicative urgency.
 
The program of the 51st International Festival of Contemporary Music showcases 61 composers from all over the world -Jordan, Kuwait, Israel, China, Korea and Japan, in addition to United States and Europe– with 17 new commissions, 25 world premieres and 22 Italian premieres.
An entire section of the Biennale Music, Made in Italy, will highlight 14 new Italian composers, who received commissions for instrumental pieces.
Commissions also to Michael Nyman, Michele Dall’Ongaro and Claudio Ambrosini.
Special concerts will be dedicated to Xenakis, Donatoni, Cage, Kagel, Nono, and Pennisi.

The Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement will be awarded to Giacomo Manzoni; the Golden Lion for the Music of the Present will be chosen among the music and the musicians of the Festival.

The Klangforum Wien will hold a masterclass for orchestra conductors, composers and instrumentalists on October 9 and 11.
