Spinnerei IV – Festival for Contemporary Music

MusikProjektSachsen e.V.

Already back in 2001 Leipzig’s Baumwollspinnerei venue was host to the first Spinnerei-Festival. Since then numerous renowned performers and composers have presented current and stylistically varied music to the interested public. In October 2011 this tradition is to be continued with the support of the EvS Music Foundation and to be extended to include some new ideas too. The highpoint of the festival will be the performance of the internationally acclaimed Minguet Quartet. In the past few years the ensemble has recorded quartets by Ruzicka, Wolfgang Rihm and Jörg Widmann for CD – the ensemble will play one quartet by each of the composers at the Spinnerei-Festival. Furthermore, two premieres are also planned for this concert. 

October 1st to 3rd 2011
