CS 16/17

Concert season 2016/2017

Collegium Musicum Maj

Choir “Collegium Musicum” performed at the closing of season

To listen to the “Collegium Musicum” is always a special pleasure. It’s the type of concert from wich the audience goes with a smile. At first sight, this non-binding conclusion is actually touching the very essence of every art, and music – that is, to enrich the man. Since its creation in 1971, “Collegium Musicum” has set high professional goals as the academic choir of the Faculty of Music in Belgrade. These goals have been overcome over decades and they have become synonym for the professional choir in Serbia. For this reason, the audience knows that from this choir they can expect only a top-notch listen experience, and that is why they are happily going to their concerts. Read More →

Gligoric mart

Vladimir Gligoric performed at seventh concert of season

Pianist Vladimir Gligoric held a concert in Kragujevac, within the Concert season “Convivium Musicum 16/17” on March 6th. Gligoric’s resital is one of the best concerts that the Kragujevac audience had the opportunity to hear during this Concert season. As a guest at concert, violinist Mia Kovacevic also played, performing Sonata for violin and piano by Vladimir Trajkovic, as well as our famous violinist Sasa Mirkovic, who performed with Gligoric Four preludes for violin and piano by Vladimir Jevtic. To the expert public, all three artists are well-known for their commitment to better promotion and the performance of the music of Serbian composers. Vladimir Gligoric is one of the few pianists who is intensely focused on exploring and performing the music of our contemporary composers in recent years. The audience had the opportunity to hear the performance of some of the older creative generations, such as the Three Impromties Op. 12 bis by Vlastimir Trajkovic, but also very young hopes of Serbian music like the composition of Stanko Simic – Five meditations for piano.

Lenka Februar

Lenka Petrovic performed at sixth concert of season

The Kragujevac audience does not often have the opportunity to meet harp sounds, especially as a solo instrument. It was the concert of the young and promising harpist Lenka Petrovic, a fourth-year student at the Art Academy in Novi Sad, who replaced this shortcoming. This talented and successful artist has performed within Concert season „Convivium Musicum 16/17“. In the crowded hall of the First Kragujevac Gymnasium she performed works by Scarlatti, Bach, Hindemith, Debussy, Henriette Renie and Ekaterina Walter-Kühne. The combination of healing, soothing, and seductive sound as well, floated between two poles that came to their full expression in the mature and self-conscious interpretation of the young artist.

Jura Januar

Yuri Kot performed at fifth concert of the season

The adventures that pianists and audience experience when there are Beethoven’s piano sonatas on the concert repertoire resemble those we encounter in the most imaginative and creative works of art. Thus, the audience from Kragujevac met with an unusual world of majestic tonal beings that aroused from the elaborate and passionate interpretation of the three Beethoven sonatas from opus 10 – c minor, F major and D major. Renowned Ukrainian pianist Yuri Kot, who performed during the Concert season “Convivium Musicum 16/17”, led us to phantasmagorical music landscapes, showing studiousness, verve and refinement in interpretation.

Marija i Ksenija Decembar

Fourth concert of season – Maria Gessler and Kseniia Vokhmianina

Concert of soprano Maria Gessler (Switzerland) and pianist Kseniia Vokhmianina (Ukraine / Singapore) within the Concert season „Convivium Musicum 16/17“ flowed in the strong and expressive dialogue of top artists and laced in the same colour, character, inner experience. Knowingly selected musical travel through the most diverse emotional ravel, from two sentimental Romances of P.I. Tchaikovsky, through Wolf’s Songs to Goethe’s verses, drama-coloured Wesendonck poems by Richard Wagner and some from the Mahler’s cycle The boy’s magic horn, led the audience into the magical world of united words and tones, richly differentiated and impressive.

Camerata Academica Oktobar

Second concert of the season – Camerata Academica

The second concert of the Concert season “Convivium Musicum 16/17” was marked with the suggestive and inspired sound of the strings. It came to its full expression in the baroque compositions that were on the repertoire that night – from Vivaldi’s Concert for strings RV 151 to Bach’s Brandenburg concert no. 3 in G major. The Chamber Ensemble Camerata Academica from Novi Sad, with its interpretation and harmonious relationship within the orchestra, managed to transfer to the auditorium the unique idea and energy that was the reason for the tumultuous applause.
