Music & Word Festival made yet another evening artfully delicious, as the exhibit 'The Modernists' showcased some great artwork. That in and by itself surely would have sufficed, but the organizors did not stop there: they offered their visitors the screening of the critically acclaimed films Bunarman, Plašitelj kormorana and Recikliranje -- all three award-winners at the Croatian Film Days.
Sure Nicholson said it in 'Chinatown' and Damon drop the same line in 'Good Will Hunting', but three is a charm, no? So, how do you like them apples!
The second week of this year's edition of the Music & Word Festival ended with a bang. Classic rock sounds meshed with "Atlantida's" hits from their new album Premalo za san (Too Little for a Dream) to bring rock sound to the space usually reserved for the traditional folk song and dance, the space used to only the sound of traditional Konavle string instruments such as ljerica and tamburica.
KUD Čilipi's terrace was wall-to-wall filled with audience of all ages that, judging by the ambiance and their smiles, loved both the old and the new "Atlantida's" hits. Cudos to the band!
Next Event: Art Exhibit and (Awarded) Film Screenings
Music & Word Festival continues on Wednesday June 19 with the Dubrovnik Wind Quintet (each musician is also a member of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra).
Their programme includes compositions by such greats as J. C. Bach, F. Lhotka Kalinski, W. Kappa, H. Riethmuller and F. Farkas.
The concert will be held in the Pinacoteque (adjecent to St. Nicholas Church in Cavtat) starting at 9pm.
All are welcome to attend free of charge.
St. Nicholas church in Čilipi was full of spectators on Wednesday evening as the 7th edition of the Music & Word Festival started with a Bethoveen & co 'bang'. Needless to say, the well known Dubrovnik choir Libertas (conducted by Viktor Lenert) and the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (conducted by Nicola Giuliani) brought waves of musical joy upon the audience.
