Welcome to the Suså Festival ’15 –
Three late summer days of new music and a window on Portugal.
It is Suså Festival time again! Three late summer days of new music on 2nd, 3rd & 4th September at Grønnegades Kaserne KULTURCENTER, Næstved (five minutes from Næstved train station).
The Suså Festival is an annual meeting place for serious contemporary music; a “golden meeting” of composers, audiences and players; three intense days featuring seven prominent soloists and ensembles from at home and abroad, a lyrics and music show, and a fascinating meet-the-composer event.
This year the festival will also be presenting Window on Portugal, for which we are flying in the elite Grupo de Música Contemporânea de Lisboa in from Lisbon.
This year thirtyone contemporary composers will be providing a picture of music today: in Portugal via six works, in Denmark via fifteen works and moreover, several remarkable international composers from Faroe Islands, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Cuba, England, Greece, USA and Germany, such as Lachenmann, Ferneyhough, Aperghis et al.
If you are interested in contemporary music, or if you are simply curious about the times in which you live, try the Suså Festival; it may be just up your street!
Welcome to the festival!
