COMMISSIONS AND NEW WORKS - 2020 FESTIVAL SEASON
We see commissioning, performing and recording of new works essential to the vibrancy of our own community and as a contribution to the international community at large. For this reason we are engaged with composers, chamber music ensembles, orchestras and soloists in pursuing new avenues of expression. Art matters; innovation matters; reaching across cultures, nationalities and generational norms matters. Creativity knows no bounds. We are here to give it impetus and voice.
