Bludenz Days of Contemporary Music 2020:
Thursday, 08 October to Sunday, 11 October 2020

The program primarily comprises music of the 21st century, only two pieces are older. This year's program builds on milestones in the collaboration with individual composers or ensembles. In addition, the sixth BTzM master class is already taking place.

Thursday, October 8, 2020, 8:00 p.m.
The Ensemble Mosaik will open the festival with the explosive ensemble version of sugarcoating by Sara Glojnaric, which requires an extremely precise interaction and yet threatens to get out of hand at any moment. Afterwards Andrea Manciantis Autophagy ++ [microphobia] electrifies the ensemble with percussions and feedback distortions. The opening night also features two premieres, one by Kelley Sheehan, who recently won the Gaudeamus Award, and the other by Joshua Mastel, one of the winners of the 2019 BTzM master class competition.

Friday, October 9, 2020, 8 p.m.
The world premiere of Giorgio Netti's cycle Il ciclo dell’assedio is dedicated to the second concert evening, which is performed for the first time in its entirety. The cycle was created in Bludenz as commissioned by the festival. The MDI Ensemble will play with Giorgio Casati, Lorenzo Derrini, Paolo Fumagalli, Lorenzo Gentili-Tedeschi. The composition invites the audience to turn to inner listening

Saturday, October 10, 2020, 8 p.m.
On the third evening of the festival, the Trio Catch, created at the International Ensemble Modern Academy, will flutter by Beat Furrers Aer. Two world premieres by Jonah Haven (the second winner of the 2019 BTzM master class competition) and Daniela Teranova will end the concert with the Trio Catch. In the second part of the evening Julia Eckhardt, Rhodri Davies, Carol Robinso and Enrico Malatesta will dive into the ocean of Éliane Radigue's music. Two pieces from their Occam Delta series are presented, one of them a world premiere. Radigue used to work almost exclusively with ARP 2500 Modular Synthesizer and Band and only later arrived at acoustic composition. It will be exciting to hear how her instrumental handwriting today is shaped by her earlier work with space, tone and form and the electroacoustic way of thinking.

Sunday, October 11, 2020, 11 a.m. + 5 p.m.
Traditionally, there are two concerts at the end of the festival on Sunday. In the morning, the Quartetto Maurice presents six premieres by the composers of the 2020 master class competition. At least one of them will be commissioned to write a piece for next year's festival. Last but not least, the festival shows the trio formation Faint Noise. With a unique instrumentation of violin, Paetzold double bass recorder and acoustic objects, the ensemble will perform the Austrian premieres of Carola Bauckholts bird-imitating double exposure for violin and samples and Timothy McCormack's enlarged The Chain of the Spine, written for Faint Noise. Two new works by Elnaz Seyedi and Malin Bång will also be presented. It is the first composition that Malin Bång wrote for her own ensemble
