This year’s theme will center around MIRACULA. We will not, however, try to present this phenomenon strictly as a musical genre popular in medieval times – it will rather serve as a starting point, encouraging to take a broader look.
In the Western world, which is based, among other things, on a Latin culture, miracles are closely connected with a Good Book and, later on, with saints. Both of those sources were a great inspiration to many musical works. We will also try to present music as something that is, in its core, miraculous. A sole act of listening to music was emerging a person in a world, which was in a way detached from mundane, earthbound matters. Music is, therefore, something that gives another dimension to our human existence.
