This year we will launch the seventh edition of the Making New Waves Festival, this time with the title of Making New The name reflects the new structure of our annual festival according to which every second year we will present mainly Hungarian composers' pieces. And we will do it regenerating an old tradition, unfortunately very rare in the Hungarian concert life, the tradition of comissions. It means the core of the programnme will consist of pieces specially comissioned for Making New Waves. This year we have been the proud inspirators of three chamber music pieces, three ensemble pieces and a multimedia opera.
The festival programme will be completed with creative workshops, where the main focus will be put on originating new artistic products. It means out target groups are young artists, who will be challenged to work out new compositions, performances in very short time. To make this process as successful as possible, we invited very special artists as workshop-leaders, whose artistic talent, personal commitment end experience will inspire the participants. The pieces created during the workshops will be presented at the closing concert of the festival.
