Contemporary Music in Salzburg

In their divergent forms - from new and contemporary music to the different forms of jazz, rock or pop - modern music in Salzburg has established a fixed place for composers, musicians etc.

Under the generic term ‘contemporary music’ different orientations of creating music are listed, starting from the concept of new and contemporary music to the different forms of jazz, rock and pop. In their divergent manifestations, music has now won a permanent place for musicians, presenters and listeners in Salzburg.

The city of Salzburg is supporting this development through financial contributions for current year activities to institutions of contemporary music as well as through the promotion of annual activities and projects of various ensembles, groups and bands, complemented by subsidizing festivals and event series.

Together with the Salzburg Tourist Board, the Salzburg Festival of New Music Biennial has created a forum that addresses the various nuances of different genres, which takes place every two years. The successful launch took place in 2009.
