Composers have been inspired by everything about the French capital – from its seediness to its troubled political history – but most of all by its air of romance.

If thinking on politically thinking and acting contemporary composers, for sure people like Louis Andriessen or Luigi Nono have to be named. The first one is in focus of this year  festival on contempory music +ACHT BRÜCKEN | Musik für Köln  which currently takes place in Cologne. Main focus of +ACHT BRÜCKEN | Musik für Köln this year is indeed the relationship between music and politics.
