The Korkyra Baroque Festival was established in 2012 in order to promote local and international music and cultural heritage. Superb concert evenings and Korčula’s impressive culture monuments create a unique synergy and the Korkyra Baroque Festival has gained the reputation of a must-attend event on the global music scene.
The Eighth Korkyra Baroque Festival, lasting from 31st August to 14th September 2019, will once again host prestigious international and domestic ensembles and soloists, specialized in the performance of baroque music. We proudly present our guests : Ensemble Odyssee (Denmark), La Ritirata (Spain), Plaisirs de Musique (Czech Republic), Musica Batavia (Netherlands), Monteverdi String Band (United Kingdom), I Musicali Affetti (Italy), as well as renowned soloists: Krešimir Stražanac; bariton, Monika Cerovčec; soprano, Sonja Runje; mezzosopran, Anabela Barić; soprano, Franko Klisović; countertenor and conductors and harpsichord players Aapo Häkkinen and Pavao Mašić. These talented artists will be joined by the resident ensemble of the festival, the Croatian Baroque Ensemble led by distinguished violinist and Festival’s Artistic Director, Laura Vadjon.
The unquestionable cultural and touristic success of the Korkyra Baroque Festival is founded on a superior artistic musical offer, which has been drawing tourists from around the world for several years now and has enriched the tourist cultural offer of the island of Korčula, the peninsula of Pelješac and Dubrovnik. Concerts promote the churches of Korčula as cultural monuments, but also the unique cultural history of the entire County of Dubrovnik-Neretva.
