The 6th edition of NeoArte Festival – New Music Spectrum will be held on October 26-29, 2017 in Gdańsk. It's main theme will be "art synthesizer".
The main idea of this annual event is to popularise contemporary classical music to a wider audience. Renowned composers, established artists and young talented musicians meet to formulate a new musical perspective of contemporary times. The first edition of the festival was held in October 2012 with Polish composer Paweł Szymański as guest of honour, followed by Elżbieta Sikora in 2013, Cezary Duchnowski in 2014, Paweł Mykietyn in 2015, and Joanna Bruzdowicz in 2016. This time, a monographic concert will be devoted to music by Pierre Jodlowski – award-winning composer living in Poland and France, performer and multimedia artist.
The audience will have an occasion to listen to European, American and Asian contemporary music interpreted by artists from Germany, Russia, China and Poland. The festival will feature 5 world and 7 Polish premiers of works by such composers as Grzegorz Pieniek, Rafał Zapała, Piotr Peszat, Kamil Kosecki and Dai Bo, comissioned by the Institute of Music and Dance. It will also include workshops and discussion panels.
