ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Plurisons Festival is a new international contemporary music festival based in João Pessoa between the 15th and 23rd of July 2022.
In its second edition, Plurisons' program includes concerts, workshops and masterclasses for performers, composers and improvisers. The program includes 6 concerts, with works composed in the last twenty years, presenting a diverse look at musical creation in the current world including works from the Americas, Europe and Asia, as well as premieres of new works by participating composers and guests.
The guest performers are renowned musicians in the Brazilian and international scene, members of groups specialized in contemporary repertoire in Brazil, USA, France, Switzerland and England.
Throughout the festival, workshops in various fields of contemporary music will be held, including a repertoire interpretation workshop (Olivier Stankiewickz, Alice Belugou, Plurisons Ensemble), an improvisation workshop (Fernando Rocha and Remy Reber), and two composition workshops (Tonia Ko, Cristina Dignart and Januibe Tejera). The selected performers will participate in the concerts, while the selected composers will have works premiered throughout the festival. The proposal aims to allow young performers and composers to work with experienced artists, including rehearsals and revisions, assembly of important works from the contemporary repertoire, in addition to the premiere of works in concert.
The Plurisons Festival offers an overview of contemporary musical creation, exploring creative processes and approaching different aspects such as composition, improvisation and interpretation.
