In autumn 2013 the Teatro Massimo commemorated the New Music International Weeks (Settimane internazionali di nuova musica), which during the 1960s brought Palermo to worldwide attention in the musical and cultural debate, thanks to the enthusiasm of a group of young intellectuals including Antonino Titone, Francesco Agnello, Paolo Emilio Carapezza, Roberto Pagano and Eliodoro Sollima. As we treasure the memory of such exciting times in the field of New Music, we think it is also time to approach this theme again, putting the experience into perspective and questioning the state of the art today.
The Teatro Massimo has decided to establish a Festival in 2014, Nuove Musiche
, that will offer the general public, both local and international, a glimpse into contemporary music as well as 20th century historic and avant-gard music.
The Festival is scheduled from September 27 to October 5
