Wittener Tage fr neue Kammermusik 2012

The Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik have been organised by the Kulturforum in cooperation with West German Broadcasting since 1969. It is the specialists' meeting place of the avant-garde and a music fair for publishers, organisers, experts and amateurs of contemporary chamber music. In 2012 the international festival will be held from 27 to 29 April.

During the past four decades, over 600 works have been given their world premieres in Witten; most of them were commissioned by the WDR (or by the city of Witten) and have been performed many times throughout the world since their premieres.
