19:00 Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble
Moscow Contemporary Music Ensemble (MCME) was founded in 1990 by Yuri Kasparov, under the patronage of the famous Russian composer Edison Denisov. The ensemble focuses on promoting 20th and 21st century music. It is Russia’s foremost contemporary chamber ensemble and consists of some of the best Russian musicians specializing in modern music. MCME has strong educational goals and works closely with both Russian and international cultural foundations to bring contemporary music to a wide range of audiences. As part of this goal, MCME has organized the annual fortnight International Young Composers Academy (Tchaikovsky City, Ural) to bring together both young composers and internationally recognized composers in workshops. The ensemble’s repertoire is quite extensive and has included the premiere of almost 1000 different works. Particularly, they champion the music of Russian composers of the 1920’s such as Nikolai Roslavets and Alexander Mosolov. Additionally, they regularly perform music by “Shestidesyatniki” (1960’s Russian) composers (Edison Denisov, Alfred Schnitke, Sofia Gubaidulina, etc). MCME regularly performs in many diverse locales across Russia (80 cities) and elsewhere in the world (28 countries). MCME performed on the best concert stages, took part in the biggest international festivals such as “Moscow Biennale for Contemporary Art”, “DiaghilevFest” (Russia, Perm), “Radio-France presences” (Paris), “FrankfurtFest”, “Maerzmusik-Berlinerfesrspiele” (Germany), “Gaudeamus music week”, “The Night of the Unexpected” (the Netherlands), “Warsaw Autumn” (Poland), “Klangspuren” (Austria), “Tranasrt” (Italy) and other.
