Windows on the World

Alongside the traditional Listenig Sessions, IMC organises a showcase session each year to present works by composers from countries where contemporary music has no or very limited radio programming.

The showcase session Windows on the World also features students’ compositions submitted by Conservatoires that are partners in the Rostrum+ project.

These sessions came about in response to strong interest expressed by IRC delegates for this type of session, as this music is extremely difficult to access outside of national boundaries. At the same time the aim is to promote the transnational circulation of works otherwise extremely difficult to access and give visibility to composers and students.

These works are presented Hors Concours.
