is a transnational project in which twelve countries participate. It includes 22 ensembles and 176 works by 160 different composers. The project is supported by the EU Cultural Fund and its goal is to facilitate the International exchange of repertoire and musical experiences. The participants work together to have as much new music performed as possible, and to bring it to as many countries as they are able.
In co-operation with the composers, ensemble reconsil wien has prepared and performed seven works from five different countries for the RE:NEW MUSIC project.
This CD is a recording of a concert that took place in the Wiener RadioKulturHaus on June 1, 2010. It was dedicated to Slovakia, Croatia and Austria, whose borders all meet at a common point. In the concert, each country was represented by two composers: Mirela Ivicevic, Lukáš Borzík, Julia Purgina, Petra Bachratá, Marko Ruždjak and Daniel Riegler. All had works that were given either world premiers or local first performances.
The result was a memorable concert that has now been documented for posterity on this CD. It also allowed ensemble reconsil wien to engage transnationally with composers who will have a future significance far beyond that of this project.
This CD reflects the ideals that are most important to RE:NEW MUSIC. It organizes New Music projects on an international scale at the highest artistic level and builds connections between performers and composers right across Europe.
