The 23rd annual New Music Festival

The creative seed of this year’s festival is  the relationship between Pierre Boulez,  reflecting the deep rooted contemporary  traditions in Europe, and Frank Zappa, the  American maverick and iconoclast, who  began the process of breaking down genres  of all types.

It is from this new location in music that we  go “beyond,” into the diverse new pathways  of music today from Arvo Pärt and Valentin  Silvestrov, to Jonny Greenwood and Owen  Pallett, from Glenn Branca and Phil Kline, to  Max Richter and Colin Stetson.

— Alexander Mickelthwate,
Music Director, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra
