Belgrade Philharmonic String Quartet will give a concert on Tuesday, 24th May, beginning at 7 p.m. under the title “Excellent five!” on the occasion of celebrating five years of performing together. In the pleasant ambience of the Belgrade Philharmonic Concert Hall, where their chamber mission actually began, they will perform Mozart, Mendelssohn and Ravel quartets.
The Belgrade Philharmonic musicians, Jelena Dragnić, Vladan Lončar, Boris Brezovac and Aleksandar Latković founded their String Quartet within this Orchestra in 2011. In addition to gaining recognition during these five years of work in their own country, they also gave successful and well-reviewed international performances, among which was their performance in Izmir, Turkey, their performances on stages of the United Arab Emirates, their visit to China, where they played at Tianjin Concert Hall, and also their performance at the Serbian Cultural Centre in Paris.
Tireless in exploring the literature written for the string quartet, the musicians have fostered this genre with genuine dedication:
“When beginning our work in the Quartet, our initial motive was pure and simple, which can also be said about art and music. It is still so, and I believe that this will not change. That is why time is not the factor by which we measure anything, although we like to say that after five years we are at the end of our beginning”,
Says Jelena Dragnić, the Quartet’s first violin, and adds:
“The period behind us was marked by wonderful trips, tours and successful concerts, however, for a musician nothing can be compared with what we feel when playing at home!”
For their audience, the musicians prepared Mozart String Quartet K. 421 in D minor, Mendelssohn String Quartet Op. 44 No. 2 in E minor, as well as Ravel String Quartet in F major. Other than celebrating five years of their work, this concert also announces Belgrade Philharmonic String Quartet’s upcoming performance at Herbert Hall Salzburg, on 30th May. Tickets for the concert are available at the Belgrade Philharmonic box office and online.
