publikováno: 22.9.2012

Over the last 12 years, the biennial Ostrava Days festival in the Czech Republic has built a reputation as a showcase for contemporary orchestral music in Europe. Under the guidance of founder, director and chief conductor Petr Kotik, the Os- travské centrum nové hudby (Ostrava Cen- ter for New Music)—the organizing body behind the fest—has grown to include a renowned summer institute which attracts composers from around the world to teach and to present at the festival.
