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.

After four successful Festivals, the name Convivium Musicum became, we can freely say, a synonym for an interesting and non-standard program. Presentation of various forms of chamber ensembles, and top class performances of classical music that have not been performed at the Kragujevac scene so far, are the tradition we are following on this occasion as well.

Convivium Musicum 2017 – Third day

All known terminology, technical explanations and studies are not sufficient to explain the magic of chamber music of Johannes Brahms.

Every year, one concert is dedicated to the Festival’s ensemble that brings together musicians exclusively for the performance at the Festival. This year, the ensemble consisted of exceptional performers – Evenos string quartet, which presented itself to the audience the second night of the festival, and the celebrated pianist Boris Kraljevic.
