Sacrum Profanum start on 26 September and finish on 1 October, it’s a time of magnificent music which will take you to unreal Word.
„Sacrum Profanum Festival is an international project that has earned the status of one of the most interesting European music events. The festival presents newest music and is aimed at blurring the line between contemporary music, often treated as difficult and incomprehensible, and the developments of ambitious entertainment and the experimental scene. Its importance is created, on one hand, by the participation of the best ensembles playing contemporary music, e.g. Ensemble Modern, Alarm Will Sound, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Kronos Quartet, and, on the other hand, by the presence of stars of the world alternative scene, including Aphex Twin, Jónsi, Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead), Adrian Utley (Portishead), Kraftwerk and Sigur Rós. „ – this short descriptions perfectly shows festival’s atmosphere.
Avant-garde, erotica, post-internet, Romanian Spectralism, early music, musical outsiders… A total of six days, twenty concerts, a plethora of uncomfortable questions and as many satisfying answers.
