Brno Philharmonic to Organise the Brno International Music Festival


Brno City Council has decided that from 2012 onwards the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra will be the exclusive organiser of the Brno International Music Festival (BIMF). Over the 47 years of its existence, three significant projects have been carried out under the festival's heading - the Exposition of New Music (ENM), the Easter Festival of Spiritual Music (EFSM) and Moravian Autumn.

This year's festival will open with a Brno Philharmonic Orchestra concert made up of early Satie and Cage works. The orchestra's management has decided to extend the festival to include an international composition competition, whose first edition will be announced for 2013. Within ENM 2012 the competition's preliminary edition will take place, which will be open to composition students from the Visegrad Four countries as part of the CAGE 100 project.

The jury will chose one composition from each of the universities, which will be prepared within a workshop of students of the Percussion Department of JAMU under the superlative Hungarian ensemble Amadinda Percussion Group.

The workshop and competition will culminate in a performance of the winning compositions, which will be included as an official concert within the ENM festival programme. …
