The 1st Audeamus International Music Festival of Classical Music will be held in the Croatian capital Zagreb from 23-28 November…
The 5-day festival will feature four concerts from an international cohort of 9 award-winning performers and composers from 5 countries. There will be four concerts during the week, including 3 chamber music concerts at the renowned Mimara Museum Concert Hall (26-28 November) and one contemporary music concert at the Music Academy (25 November). Concerts start at 20:00 and entry will be free.
The aim of Audeamus Festival is to give the Croatian public a chance to see the cream of young Croatian composers performing rarely performed chamber music works of the twentieth century and some of the standard works of classical chamber music. The concerts will feature young, distinguished musicians from Croatia and abroad who are successfully building an international career.
Besides the cultural side, the festival will also have a humanitarian and pedagogical character. The aim of the project is to bring classical music, especially contemporary classical music performances, closer to the youth. In collaboration with GU Elly Bašić, musicians performing at the festival will hold a series of free seminars and master classes for music school students.
Those taking part in the project include Dorotea Racz – cello, Anamarija Milić – violin, Ginevra Petrucci – flute, Gleb Kanasevich – clarinet, Peter Pakhomkin – guitar, Dmitry Samogray – piano, and composers Tomislav Oliver and Lana Janjanin. The musicians live and work in Croatia, Italy, Germany and USA.
