After seven years former Bolshoi Festival has grown into Kustendorf Classical Festival. Thus the director Emir Kusturica is substantiating his idea to have film, theatre and musical festivals on Mecavnik, Mokra Gora. Srba Dinic and symphonic orchestra have been shaping the musical programme for years with the participation of world class musical stars. The festival will open with Berlioz symphony Harold in Italy and the main role of melancholic dreamer is entrusted to a violist Yuriy Basmet. Continuing the tradition that the programme should include works of Russian composers, the orchestra will perform Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring in the second part of the concert. This piece, originally conceived as a ballet, has had a large success at concert performances. Due to its polytonality, complex rhythm and use of musical-folklore arias, it is considered as a highly complex orchestral piece. With such an attractive musical programme, high quality orchestra and Srba Dinic’s experience, Kustendorf Classical Festival will be a special and rewarding event for visitors. At the open air concert light effects will colour the hill of Mecavnik, once a bare hill and today the venue of artistic production.
