The Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music celebrates its jubilee 60th edition! In fact, it is older: it was created in 1956, but editions of 1957 and 1982 did not take place, in the latter case as a protest against martial law. This jubilee is a special incentive not only to reflect about the past, the Festival’s tradition, memorable concerts and characters. We shall indeed return to the great successes and breakthrough moments of the past, but also shall address the issue that is central to the identity of Warsaw Autumn: the phenomenon of
the  a v a n t – g a r d e.
