Flame – Firenze Suona Contemporanea, Italy

The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation supports the 2013 edition of Firenze Suona Contemporanea’s (Florence Plays Contemporary). Its programme alternates pieces by contemporary composers in national premiere with established music of the last century; without forgetting that the keystone linking the events is a day dedicated to the world premier performances of the “Call for scores” for young composers - true custodians of musical research. Major space is dedicated to in-depth analysis. Under the name “L’occhio sulla musica” (Eyes on the Music) we group the presentations and afternoon meetings with the public that serve as introduction to the evening’s concerts. These are occasions for participating in musical analysis with the composers and interpreters of the programs, and for listening to outstanding figures in contemporary culture discussing the dialogue between music and the other disciplines.
