Mentality: between risk and success
Musik der Jahrhunderte encourages the new, surprising, and the insecure in music. Its goal is to place contemporary music successfully in public cultural life and prepare the ground for the art of the 21st century. In so doing, we move mostly in unknown territory: numerous world premi?res dominate our program every year.
Festivals, concert series and specialist ensembles
Musik der Jahrhunderte organizes the international music festival ECLAT in Stuttgart and is otherwise prominent in Stuttgart's cultural agenda with its outstanding concerts and music theater productions. In addition, Musik der Jahrhunderte is responsible for the management of the Neue Vocalsolisten Stuttgart.
"Think Tank" Pragsattel: a place for creativity and innovation
In April 2003, Musik der Jahrhunderte will, together with the Theaterhaus Stuttgart, move into its newly built performance venues on Stuttgart's Pragsattel, resulting in considerable expansion of its activities: music theater, concert series, festivals, the interaction of differing art forms, courses, workshops and podiums will make the Pragsattel into a center of innovation in Europe: a think-tank, laboratory and creative pool for new music.
Critical partners: the audience
Musik der Jahrhunderte has a powerful partner: an open, motivated and critical audience extending far beyond Stuttgart's boundaries. We intend to foster an ongoing exchange between audiences and composers, interpreters and cultural organizers regularly on the Pragsattel.
