MUSIC AND ECOLOGY FOR THE END OF THE KOTORART 2018
This year’s program of Don Branko’s Music Days and also the whole KotorArt, were completed on Monday, August 13th.
The two artists who in past few days performed together several times in front of the audience of one of the most important festivals, in Verbier, with diverse programs and in various ensembles – violinist Leonidas Kavakos and pianist Yuja Wang, played in a crowded Church of the Holy Spirit.
The presentation of local young musicians is especially pronounced at this year’s Don Branko’s Music Days, and for the past several years in a row, there perform the best students of the Vida Matjan School for Primary and Secondary Music Education in Kotor, with whom KotorArt intensively cooperates
As a member of Opera Studio of Belgrade National Theatre she has played many roles in the operas like “Pokondirena tikva” by Mihovil Logar, “Suor Angelica” and “Gianni Schicchi” by Giacomo Puccini, in the operetta “Die Fledermaus” by Johann Strauss as well as in dramas of Belgrade Drama Theatre.
The relationship of the festival with the national philharmonic orchestra, the development of the festival with financial support outside of state budget and the festival’s infrastructure are the topics we discussed with Ratimir Martinović, director of Don Branko Music Days just days before the very beginning of the music program.
