The Prishtina's International Festival of New Music, is the result of the work of a group of talented kosovar composers led by Rafet Rudi, the initiator of the whole idea. The main aim of the Festival is to promote contemporary music through presentation of different stylistic tendencies of the XX century up to the present day.


In the three first editions of the present Festival, we had the honor to receive, among the guest artists: Aki Takahashi (Japan), Mondriaan Quartet (Netherland), Peter Sheppard Skaerved   (England), Stockholm Saxofone Quartet (Sweden),  Choir  Pravoslavie (Bulgaria), Trio Fibonacci (Canada), Rafael Andia (France), Jean Jacques Balet & Mayumi Kameda (Switzerland), Marcel Worms (Netherland), Kifu Mitsuhashi  &  Nanae Yoshimura (Japan), Ian Pace (Great Britain), Andreas Lewin Richter (Spain), Ehat Musa (France), Irene Maessen (Netherland), Annette Vande Gorne (Belgium), Pascal Godart (France), Orphelié Gaillard (France), Florent Héau (France), Eleonore Pameijer (Netherland), Ensemble contemporain du Conservatoire de Genève (Switzerland),  Ensemble Amra (Albania), Ensemble Vivendi (Kosovo), etc. The works of Bartok, Stravinsky, Hindemith, Shostakovich, Messiaen, Ligeti, Scelsi, Pendereczki, Takemitsu, Nishimura, Xenakis, Nancarrow, Rzewski, Parmerud, Murail, Dusapin, Radelescu, Clarke ect. have been performed.


An additional relationship is established between kosovar music creators and their colleagues from around the world, as our renowned guests always include works of our composers in their performances. On the other hand, these encounters give to our performing artists the opportunity to present their artistic expression amidst valuable international competitors.
