The Saint-Petersburg Contemporary Music Center reMusik.org announces the VI St. Petersburg International New Music Festival «reMusik.org», taking place from May 20th – 26th, 2019.

The festival will be held in distinguished venues around the city, including the Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall, the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater, St. Ann’s Church, Masterskaya M. K. Anikushina, and the St. Petersburg State Conservatory.

This year’s festival coincides with the famous White Nights Season. Internationally-renowned ensembles will be performing, including: ensemble für neue musik zürich (Switzerland), Garage Ensemble (Germany), Chronos (Cyprus), Ensemble for New Music Tallinn (Estonia), Studio for New Music Ensemble (Russia), Makrokosmos Quartet (Switzerland), and more.

Among this season’s highlights is a new professional training program focusing on the creation and performance of new works by emerging composers. The 20 young resident composers from all over the world are chosen through a portfolio application process. Each resident will write a new piece to be premiered by inviting ensembles at the festival. They will also take part in rehearsals, have composition lessons with guest composers at the festival, and give presentations on their works.
