UNG NORDISK MUSIK 2015

BOUNDARIES

Ung Nordisk Musik (UNM) is a festival of art music of the circulating, not the settled kind. Running since 1946 it has been organized yearly, each of the hosting Nordic countries taking turns. The composers featured on the festival comprise mostly of residents of the Nordic countries who haven’t yet reached their thirties.

No centralised artistic leadership actually exists; instead the choices of works are made by juries formed in the individual countries. As a result, rather diverse prospects into Nordic new art music are being offered.

The theme of the festival this year is “Boundaries”.
