Every year in the baroque southeast of Sicily, the Vienna-based double bass player Alessandro Vicard curates a small, but exquisite summer festival for improvised and experimental music and other art forms, facilitating a lively musical exchange between the Austrian capital and the Sicilian mountains. So, when the Rara festival makes its guest appearance at Wien Modern 2018, it will bring an unmistakable Sicilian touch to the gathering of old and new faces from Vienna’s improvisation scene. The Austrian weather and venue may feel unseasonably cool, but Rara will warm up the proceedings with just the right degree of Mediterranean style and laissez-faire.
