IMC highlights contemporary music during one week in Paris


Paris, June 5, 2009 -
 From 8-12 June, the International Music Council organises, in cooperation with Radio France, the 56th International Rostrum of Composers. The 2009 Rostrum will gather representatives from 29 national radio networks from four continents, which present 57 works composed within the five years preceding the Rostrum. Finnish Radio Executive Producer Heikki Valsta will chair the sessions. After the listening sessions, the assembly of delegates will select and recommend the most important works in two categories: general and "young composers". These and other works will be presented in concerts and broadcast after the Rostrum by the participating and other interested radio stations. The results will be announced on June 12 at 12:30.

One of the most important projects in promoting contemporary creation in music via radio broadcasting for over 50 years, the Rostrum has been fulfilling an additional mission since the launch of a new formula in 2003: to become a forum for professional exchange among radio music producers. Still, its central purpose, supported closely by the European Broadcasting Union, is to provide contemporary musical creations the largest possible number of broadcasts worldwide. For instance, the works presented at the 2008 Rostrum received over 400 broadcasts by the participating radio networks as well as by other broadcasting organizations; the 2008 selected works in the two categories were broadcast by as many as 30 radios.
 
Pursuing its aim to respond to delegates’ professional interests and needs, the Rostrum’s listening sessions will this year again be complemented by workshop sessions. These workshops will again be an exceptional opportunity for knowledge sharing and capacity building; the workshop leaders will spare no effort to stimulate the discussion and to encourage interaction among all participants.
