The Saint-Petersburg Contemporary Music Center «reMusik.org» announces the VI St. Petersburg International New Music Festival, taking place from May 20th — 26th, 2019. The reMusik.org Festival is a point of intersection where the diverse world views of contemporary composers meet at a crossroads of musical paths that have emerged in the past few years.
