Festival Melos-Ethos 2019
CONFLICTS BETWEEN THE CONTEMPRARY WORLD AND THE RECENT PAST
15th international Festival of contemporary music
The Festival is since 1991 in two-year cycles the greatest show of home and foreign contemporary music production. The dramaturgy of the Festival follows two base lines. The Festival, which distinguishes itself as an author Festival, gives the Slovak authors the opportunity to premiere their pieces in the Festival concerts. The second line is the propagation of inland and newest foreign music performed by Slovak and foreign top artists and ensembles.
The 15th year brings 11 concerts (10 of them in Bratislava), more than 40 pieces resound, 8 international and 25 Slovak premieres. Performers from Slovakia and abroad – ensembles specialized in contemporary music performance – introduce pieces for solo instruments, chamber ensembles, symphony orchestras and in a not inconsiderable extent also multimedia pieces.
