Making New Music in Cold War Poland : The Warsaw Autumn Festival, 1956-1968 Hardback

Part of the California Studies in 20th-Century Music series

Description

Making New Music in Cold War Poland presents a social analysis of new music dissemination at the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music, one of the most important venues for East-West cultural contact during the Cold War.

In this incisive study, Lisa Jakelski examines the festival's institutional organization, negotiations among its various actors, and its reception in Poland, while also considering the festival's worldwide ramifications, particularly the ways that it contributed to the cross-border movement of ideas, objects, and people (including composers, performers, official festival guests, and tourists).

This book explores social interactions within institutional frameworks and how these interactions shaped the practices, values, and concepts associated with new music.
