Dubrovnik's Cultural Delight: A Spring Filled with Classical Music!
Dubrovnik is certainly renowned for its exceptional cultural offerings. Numerous events take place in the city throughout the year, with most of them occurring during the summer season when the city is bustling with visitors from all over the world. However, to ensure that the beautiful and warm spring days are not left unfulfilled, the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has taken the initiative to meet the need for quality music programs by launching an event called Dubrovnik Musical Spring. Since 2017, during the months of April, May, and this year even June, carefully selected music programs have been held at several attractive locations in Dubrovnik, intended for both the locals and visitors, highlighting the importance of music and its tradition in Dubrovnik.
Therefore, if you are planning a gathering, conference, or congress in Dubrovnik during this period, make sure to include this cultural event in your social program or incentive. The spring concert season of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra and the program of Dubrovnik Musical Spring began on April 20th and offer numerous concerts for two full months, featuring soloists from Dubrovnik, Croatia, and abroad.
Concerts dedicated to the works of Ludwig van Beethoven
An interesting music and cultural program opened with a performance by the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra under the baton of its conductor Ivan Hut, featuring one of the most prominent representatives of the younger generation of Croatian clarinetists, Bruno Philipp. The program continued with a recital by violinist Loris Grubišić and pianist Jadranka Garin. In addition to Maestro Hut, the previous concerts of the music spring were conducted by Valentin Egel, one of the most talented European conductors, while solo performances were given by hornist Toni Kursar, bassoonist Matija Novaković, the String Quartet of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, and the award-winning soprano Marija Kuhar Šoša.
