The 2nd International Musical Forum Past and Future: Cultural Interaction in Music of East-European and Eurasian Countries includes a number of various actions (meetings, round-tables, master-classes, performances, audio-actions, exhibitions) with the participation of eminent musicians, composers and musicologists from East-European and Eurasian countries to present and to make re-evaluation of the interaction of national music cultures experienced at the beginning of the 21st century and the new millennium (in memoriam of the eminent musicologist and composer, teacher, Prof. Yury Fortunatov).
The cultural interaction is understood as interaction between traditions and innovations and different national cultures.
The main goal of the festival-forum is to develop creative contacts and interaction between composers and musicologists from the countries of this region as well as between professional musicians and circles of the public.
The project's realization is review on the important aspects of contemporary musical situation as well as determination of priorities and methods of cultural policy to further development of musical art.
The festival-forum is dedicated to the memory of Prof. Yury Fortunatov, whose personality was not recognized by official Soviet authorities, but he was well known as the artistic leader and the teacher of a generation of composers and musicologists from Soviet countries, including Ukraine. He was the author of an original conception of music creation, which is important now as well. Since Fortunatov's personality was too large for standard definition, the forum ideated as homage to his memory and his principles must be rather unordinary as to the choice and character of scheduled actions.
The objective background of the project is the problem of effective mutual cultural links between the post-communist countries. Aiming at developing their national cultures, they are obliged to join globalisation processes. Both phenomena don't further contacts within this immense region. But it is impossible to find one's identity and one's own place in the contemporary world without such contacts.
Yury Fortunatov had profound respect for all the national cultures and languages. In addition to the Russian and West-European languages, he read in Estonian, Romanian, Kazakh, Uzbek, and Ukrainian. His creative school is a brilliant example of a mutually respectful multicultural and multinational cooperation.
The First forum (January 2000) has a great success confirmed by numerous publications in many countries. The forum's participants decided to start the Fortunatov's Community.
All participants have assessed the festival-forum as a great international event being very important for their professional career.
The Second International forum dedicated to the memory of Yury Fortunatov (1911-1998), an eminent orchestrator, musicologist and professor of composition, has continued Fortunatov's tradition of creative communication in the new millennium. Many Fortunatov's pupils and followers as well as young musicians and composers were brought together. The participants stressed the leadership of Ukraine in the process of cultural interaction between the post-communist countries as well as between these and other countries of the world.
The participants of the Festival-forum created the Organizational Committee of the Independent International Yury Fortunatov Foundation aimed at the publishing his musical, musicological and pedagogical heritage, works by his pupils and followers, hold international festival and conferences, found Fortunatov prizes and grants etc.
