70 YEAR ANNIVERSARY – INTERNATIONAL SUMMER COURSE FOR NEW MUSIC 2016


70 years: 1946 – 2016
International Summer Course for New Music Darmstadt (29 July – 14 August 2016)

 

Temporal whirl, temporal maelstrom – vortex temporum: the right metaphor for the opening concert of the 48th Darmstadt International Summer Course for New Music in 2016, but also a fitting image for the eventful history of one of the most important platforms in the world for the music of our time. The Darmstadt Summer Course has existed for 70 years; it took place for the first time in 1946 at Kranichstein Hunting Lodge, before the gates of an utterly destroyed city. Seven decades of the Darmstadt Summer Course – which also means seven decades of shaping music history. The name of Darmstadt is associated with virtually all significant figures in contemporary music after 1945, as well as the aesthetic debates and sometimes vehement controversies about the present and future of composition.
