Nordic Music days 2019 is called Truth?

With this theme, we want to investigate whether music can provide moments of truth. Who owns the truth, who owns the story and who owns the art? Is it possible to discuss whether the music is true? Which repertoire becomes historical and what processes, structures and possibly coincidences form the historical writing?  Is the music, which is often wordless, more free than other forms of art? Is reality an antonym of art and artistry? My story is as true as yours - but it will never be the same story. We will look at the importance of telling a wide range of stories and present many voices. Everyone owns their own truth.
