Controtempo 2013, fourth edition of Villa Medici’s Contemporary Festival of music

French Academy – Villa Medici, Rome, Italy

Controtempo is Villa Medici’s annual Contemporary Festival of music. The fourth edition taking place from February 9 to 15, 2013, will be supported by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. The event serves as a platform broadcasting the works of young French-Italian talents and promoting contemporary music in Europe. Concerts by recognized ensembles, colloquiums and screenings of documentaries about composers, as well as meetings with them, will take place over the course of four days and evenings. The screenings and the lectures will take place in the Villa Medici’s cinema whereas the concerts of the festival will be mainly hosted in the Grand Salon, a space which offers an intimate atmosphere and perfectly fits the acoustic requirements of a concert of contemporary music. The programming of the fourth edition of the Controtempo festival, run by Yann Robin for the artistic direction, will deal with the theme of “the voice”.
