2/11      More New New Music

21st century music has broken away from the cage imposed by the 100-year-old tradition of “experimental”, “contemporary”, “new music” and/or “avant-garde”. Starting in the 1980s, some composers, many of them from Latin America, started bringing together different traditions, including the one of classical Western music with the music of the 20th century. The result is what Fiesta’s host, Elbio Barilari, likes to call New New Music: music that is new and feels free to embrace musicality and beauty without complexes.
