13th until 15th April 2018
Following the great success of the pilot edition in June 2016, the small but exquisite festival for contemporary Austrian music goes into a second round in 2018: on each of the three evenings of the 13th, 14th and 15th April there will be two concerts by international ensembles in the Berio Hall – the first at 6:00 pm and the second at 8:30 pm. That will increase the total number of concerts from four to six but make the festival more compact by focussing it into the three consecutive evenings of a single weekend. The concept of «Bridges» remains the same: to bring ensembles from neighbouring countries and further afield to Vienna to perform contemporary music of Austrian origin (in the widest sense) and then take it back home with them. It is not only the composers, and performers who profit from this flourishing trade and building of bridges, but you, the audience, as well.
