The Rest is Noise: The Rise of Nationalism
The festival Rest is Noise digs deep into the music and history of the 20th century. As the imperial world collapsed, new nations emerged, giving rise to a new interest in national culture and history and inspiring composers, from England’s Ralph Vaughan Williams to Bohemia’s Leoš Janáček.

the political and musical map of Europe.
From intimate discussions to films to talks with some of the greatest thinkers of our time.
One of the events is:
Tom Service: Composers Embrace their Folk Traditions
