„Taking part in the „Internationale Akademie für Neue Komposition und Audio-Art” in "avantgarde-tirol" Festival is a very special experience for many reasons. To be in one of the most beautiful parts of Europe, the Austrian Tirol, is a great inspiration in itself. Also, the festival is organised in a way which enables the distinguished international instrumentalists to work daily, over the whole period of the festival, with each composer individually, on the particular technical & other problems connected with the work in hand. This makes it possible for each composer to try out new ideas in many different ways, especially valuable in our global age of inter-diffusion of ideas and techniques. Long may the "avantgarde-tirol" festival be of benefit to our time!”

Rohan de Saram

The cellist Rohan de Saram, together with the Arditti Quartet were guests of avantgarde tirol in 1997. In 1999 and 2007 Rohan de Saram taught at the 7th and 11th Academies. We hope next year to be able to welcome him once again as as soloist and teacher in Tirol.
