This book project investigates one of the Cold War's most important venues for cross-border connections: the Warsaw Autumn International Festival of Contemporary Music. Launched in 1956, the festival featured music and musicians from both the Soviet and American zones of influence. Now one of the longest-running institutions of its kind, the Warsaw Autumn continues to enable modernist ideas to circulate transnationally. Situating the festival in socialist and post-socialist Poland, I analyze the maneuvers that have made it possible. I consider how the Warsaw Autumn has promoted cultural integration and facilitated a definition of modernism in Poland that is simultaneously local and cosmopolitan. As a result, I shed new light on the cultural politics of East-Central Europe and the exercise of soft power during the Cold War. By focusing on institutional practices in what is perhaps an unexpected center for new music, I also provide fresh insights into the history of modernism after 1945.
