In 2018, “Sound Paths” will celebrate its 30th anniversary. The festival was created at the initiative of the Petersburg composer Alexander Radvilovich and one of the first in the country introduced the audience to the avant-garde music of domestic and foreign composers. Continuing a long-term tradition, “Sound Ways” annually presents Russian and world premieres. A special place in the concert poster is devoted to the compositions of Petersburg authors, many of whom were created specifically for the festival. The anniversary program will be attended by the Moscow Ensemble of Contemporary Music and Parisian "Multiraterale", St. Petersburg ensembles "Sound Ways" and "Instead".
