The 63rdInternational Festival of Contemporary Music, directed by Ivan Fedele and organized by La Biennale di Venezia chaired by Paolo Baratta, to be held in Venice from September 27thto October 6th, presents 16 events for a total of 30 premiere performances: 19 world premieres and 11 Italian premieres.
“After the themes developed in the two previous editions” – comments Ivan Fedele – “concerning the relationship between the music and cultures of the Asian continent (2017) and the American continent (2018) and the cutting edge of European experiences, the next Festival will deal eminently with some of the most interesting realities (composers and performers) of the ‘Old Continent’ which remains a benchmark for music, and more in general, the culture of our time. A continent which has never ceased to raise crucial questions about art and its relationship with the present time and which remains today at the centre of a multiplicity of propulsive forces driving artistic contexts around the world”.
