Music Biennale Zagreb, Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra and Zagreb Philharmonic treat audience with concerts at Lisinski

 

The Music Biennale Zagreb, in cooperation with the Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra and the Zagreb Philharmonic, have decided to treat the citizens of Zagreb and their guests with free symphony extravaganzas of contemporary music on Thursday, April 23, and Friday, April 24.

As part of its Master cycle, the Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra will perform compositions by five great contemporary European composers to whose works the entire Biennale Thursday is dedicated. The program also includes the legendary composition Asyla by the British composer Thomas Adès, who pushes the limits of each orchestra that undertakes its performance.

A special attraction of the Zagreb Philharmonic’s Biennale concert on Friday will be the premiere of the Symphony Movement for Organ and Orchestra by the Croatian composer Davorin Kempf, with the organist Ljerka Očić as a soloist.

The concerts begin at 7.30 pm, and free tickets could be collected at the Lisinski box office.
