Zadar Chamber Orchestra

Zadar Chamber Orchestra

Concerts of the Zadar Chamber Orchestra are some of the most popular cycles organized by the Zadar Concert Office thanks to their local production. Under the artistic direction of Maestro Ivan Repušić, the most successful Croatian conductor of the younger generation (currently residing in Germany), the Orchestra performs in concerts on the highest level during the concert season. Attracting renowned soloists from all over Croatia and Europe, the Orchestra’s performances features repertoire and rarely performed works from wide specter of musical literature, nurturing Croatian music making, and premiering works of Croatian composers and enabling an increasing number of Zadar string players to perform regularly in their hometown.

Bersa

Bersa

Both the cycle and the Zadar Music School acquired their name after one of the most prominent local composers, Blagoje Bersa. The cycle is a result of collaboration between the Zadar Concert Office and the Music School Blagoje Bersa. A series of five concerts each concert season has become a platform for the School’s professors and students to give performances outside their home institution, and an opportunity to present themselves and their new music projects and collaborations to wider audiences. The cycle also initiated Bersijada, a musical and theatrical celebration dedicated to Blagoje Bersa.

International Choir Competition

International Choir Competition

International Choir Competition Zadar grew out of the long tradition of choral singing in the city. Guardians of the tradition are primarily Croatian Choral Music Society Zoranić, founded in 1908, and the Festival of Choirs that was held in Zadar from 1970 until the beginning of the Croatian War of Independence. Building upon their endeavors, the city of Zadar established the Competition in 1997, as an event of concert and competitive character that carries on even today and supports amateur choral singing tradition on local, national and international level. The competitors include amateur choirs from various parts of Europe and lines of work, whose participation in the formal competitive part of the program, as well as their informal performances at town squares enrich and rejuvenate the cultural and musical life of the city.

Musical Evening In St Donat

Musical Evening In St Donat

Musical evenings in St Donat are the oldest international music festival in Zadar. The festival was created in 1961 when local conductor Pavle Dešpalj, with a group of friends and musicians, decided to adapt the church of St. Donat for concerts. Over the course of half a century, their youthful enthusiasm turned into one of the most important festivals in Croatia, uniquely combining music and architecture. The rotunda of the Holy Trinity or St Donat is an acoustic phenomenon which makes any kind of musical ensemble sound amazing. The beauty of its interior and acoustic idiosyncrasy never fail to impress the numerous musicians and ensembles who perform there during the festival (Dunja Vejzović, Catherine Livljanić, Valter, May Dešpalj-Begovic, Igor Kuljerić, Ivan Repušić, Stefan Milenkovic, Monika Leskovar, Giovanni Sollima, Renata Pokupić, Aniello Desiderio, Valentina Fijačko, Dangain, Alexander Kalajdžić, Dimitrij Sinkovski, Sascha Goetzel, Lorin Maazel, Croatian Radiotelevision Choir, ensembles Pro Cantione Antiqua, Dialogos, Hilliard, Perceval, Zadar Chamber Orchestra, Zagreb Soloists, Varaždin Chamber Orchestra, German Chamber Orchestra, Hungarian Virtuosi, Orquestrina Baborák and many others). Musical evenings in St Donat host performances of various genres of music by world's top musicians and serve as a meeting place of Zadar's most prominent musicians, painting an image of this musical event as one of the greatest music focal points in our area.

Bersijada

Bersijada

In 2008, Croatian Music Association, National and University Library in Zagreb and the Class for Music Art and Musicology of the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sciences teamed up to initiate Project Bersa. The intention was to publish five volumes of journal entries, literary titles, correspondences, pedagogical material and a thematic bibliography, as well as 14 volumes of sheet music that would feature the entire solo, chamber, choral, orchestral, music and scenic opus of one of the most important composers of the 20th century, Blagoje Bersa (1873 – 1934).  Such an endeavor also inspired another project – Bersijada – a musical/educational project, but also a celebration in the honor of Blagoje Bersa, composer and artist who spent most of his life in Zadar, a city that served as his main inspiration. Today Zadar Music School proudly carries his name, and the Zadar Concert Office features the project as a part of the Bersa cycle. The goal of Bersijada is to present the composer's life and work. The performers interpreting Bersa's work have always been primarily students and professors from the Zadar Music School, as well as their guests – professional musicians and professors from the Music Academy in Zagreb. Bersa's works are performed at all levels during Bersijada, which stands as proof of the project’s educational aspect. Beside artistic goal achieved by the performers depending on the level of their interpretation, Bersijada allows us to get acquainted with Bersa himself, played by local actor Vinko Radovčić, who interprets composer's journal entries, allowing the audiences to learn more about the composer's character and zeitgeist of his age.
