About this item

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. It examines the festival’s institutional organization, negotiation, and 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). Most broadly, this book is about the performance of social interactions within institutional frameworks and how they have shaped the practices, values, and concepts associated with “new” music.
