Festival Aspects des Musiques d`Aujourd`hui
Orchestre de Caen
Already since 1982 the festival Aspects des Musiques d’Aujourd’hui of the Orchestre de Caen has been promoting contemporary music with concerts, workshops, seminars and master classes, consciously extending the repertoire of the orchestra. Every year sees a series of contemporary music concerts being performed alongside exhibitions, seminars, workshops and lecture recitals with composers. An honorary guest at the EvS Music Foundation sponsored event Aspects des Musiques d’Aujourd’hui 2011 will be Finnish national Kaija Saariaho.

Alongside the Orchestre de Caen hosts, the line-up here includes Les Jeunes Solistes and the Ardeo String Quartet.
