Closing of the fifth Festival

The final concert of this year’s International Festival of chamber music Convivium Musicum rounded off in the best possible way the fifth edition of the Festival, as well as the idea behind this unique music festivity in Kragujevac.

This unusual composition consists of five pianists from Serbia: Julija Bal, Jelena Bajic, Jovana Radovanovic, Stevan Spalevic and Nemanja Egeric. They are all excellent artists and pedagogues, and they had numerous and successful performances across Serbia and the world, as well as a large number of awards and recognitions. Their outstanding performance on the piano, as it was announced, was presented in various forms of piano ensembles.

New lineup of Festival’s ensemble wowed the audience

The specialty and significance behind the concept of the Festival ensemble Convivium Musicum came to the third concert of the Festival in full glory. The idea of artists, that have not previously performed together, which in just a few days make a full-length program, has proven to be especially interesting to both performers and the audience this time. João Paiva from Portugal – clarinet, Morta Grigaliūnaitė from Lithuania – piano and Filip Tomic from Serbia – cello, have proven that great professionalism always results in an exceptional concert. These young artists have long proven themselves as top soloists. At last night’s concert, they demonstrated the power of chamber music – the power of communication between artists and instruments, and simultaneously highlighting each instrument separately.

5th International festival of chamber music Convivium Musicum

Chamber music is celebrated for the fifth time in a row in Kragujevac. We are proud to announce the jubilee – 5th International festival of chamber music Convivium Musicum, which will be held from 25th to 28th September 2018.
