Cluj Modern

Every two years, in the middle of Spring, the Cluj Modern Festival becomes, for one week, the center of attention in Romanian contemporary musical life. The Gheorghe Dima Music Academy is the principal organizer of the festival; its regular partners are the Transilvania State Philharmonic and the Sigismund Toduţă Foundation. Since its first edition in 1995 and until now, the artistic director of Cluj Modern is composer Cornel Ţăranu, an important member of Romanian cultural life and member of the Romanian Academy.

The festival is a very respected platform of the contemporary music events in the city. The program combines national and international creations, its guests being, since 2004 (the year the festival was founded), the most representative contemporary music personalities: among them, Iannis Xenakis, Krzysztof Penderecky or György Kurtág. The first live european broadcast of a concert in Cluj took place on March 29th 2009, on the occasion of the world premiere of Kurtág’s Colinda-Baladă.
