Argento presents Moving Sounds Festival 2018

October 1 to 4, 2018

The Moving Sounds Festival 2018 explores the influence of Gustav Mahler, the first truly modern composer, on contemporary music and culture. British musician Deryck Cooke wrote “… In Mahler we find expressed for the first time the dilemma of that typically modern figure, the man who is uprooted and out of his element. In consequence, he could find no stable society to be a part of, and his life was an unremitting quest to discover some accepted attitude with which to identify himself.” The featured composers in this festival are Mahler’s soulmates; the cultural tensions between these artists and their respective environments create rich and sometimes unsolvable tensions in their music.
