Two ensambles in-residence for six nights and workshop activities: 'Speculum Musicae' and 'Bang on A Can', with a lot of other bands: Ethel Quartet, Amsterdam Trio, Nextime Ensemble, the Koch/Schütz/Studer trio, a Finn team with Magnus Lindberg, composer, Anssi Karttunen, cellist, Sylvie Courvoisier in trio with Mark Feldmand and Erik Friedlander, and the duo of Peter Skaerverd - Aaron Shorr.
A great part of the Festival is dedicated to the jazz ensembles and it represents a cross section of contemporary musical research that transforms and transcends the sounds of jazz: Django Bates and his group Human Chain in concert with the Smith string quartet, Don Byron with his Music for Six Musicians, Steve Coleman & Five Elements, Elliott Sharp with the Carbon, George Lewis in trio with Muhal Richard Abrams and Roscoe Mitchell, Henry Threadgill and his ensemble, Dave Douglas and Uri Caine; and the new Italian scene with Furio Di Castri and Gianluca Petrella.
