Ostrava Days 2015: Institute and Festival of New and Experimental Music
Ostrava Center for New Music, Ostrava, Czech Republic
The Ostrava Days biennale is a three-week event with a focus on compositions for orchestra culminating in a nine-day festival. During the festival and the preceding academy over 90 works will be performed – 30 of which are premieres. The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is supporting the festival. The Ostrava Days wish to create an environment that fosters a close dovetailing of working, learning and teaching as well as performing. Here the organizers are attempting to create ideal working conditions. 35 composition students will collaborate on their works daily with teachers and performers. The festival this year offers a total of 250 participating artists, 50 teaching units, 17 concerts and 90 works.
