Bringing about new things: Ilya Gringolts' I&I Foundation

The I&I Foundation, founded by Ilya Gringolts and Ilan Volkov, has begun its work: Five outstanding composers will be supported by the Foundation in the current season. Through a series of micro-commissions, they are given the opportunity to dedicate themselves completely to writing music over a longer period of time.
