The second event in CIMRO DAYS is a different kind of symposium: four young musicologists will give four different and exciting views on the same subject, “Mechanics and Mechanisms in Music”. You’ll find out what subtle connections are there between wheels, pistons, clocks, as well as between musical predictability versus musical unforseeableness, by listening to Ştefan Firca, Irina Niţu, Vlad Văidean (Bucharest) and Bianca Ţiplea-Temeş (Cluj). The symposium is powered by Modernism.ro and is part of the “Variations on a Given Theme” series, one of the very few commission projects for young musicians in Romania – sustained by the Administration of the National Cultural Fund / Administraţia Fondului Cultural Naţional.

Free entrance.
