The Centre for Art and Music of the Vladimir Mayakovsky Library
Symposium: Contemporary Composers. St. Petersburg
A project by Stravinsky.online
The aim of the symposium Stravinsky.online is to both reflect the landscape of new music and its ideas, and to get a better handle on its current trends and tendencies. The project offers the opportunity to look at new music through the eyes of the music’s authors and to hold a discussion with them – not only about the internal musical structures and compositional tools of their works, but about the very process of composing itself.
The sphere of topics discussed by the participants of the symposium will touch upon principles important for understanding aspects of new music. The creative attitudes and musical/aesthetic values will be shared publicly by the leading composers of St. Petersburg. The project acts as a continuation of the first symposium held in Moscow earlier in March of this year.
