Founded in 1991, Belgrade Early Music Festival is the first festival of its kind in Serbia.

Devoted to the performance of music from Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Classical periods on period instruments, during its rich 30-year history the Festival has welcomed such ensembles as New Trinity Baroque (USA); Sprezzatura (UK); Die Kölner Akademie (Germany); Block6 the Hague (Switzerland); Il Rossignolo, I Bassifondi, Seicento Stravagante and Concerto de’ Cavalieri (Italy); Artemandoline and cantoLX (Luxemburg); Antiphonus, Croatian Baroque Ensemble and Minstrel (Croatia); as well as Serbian ensembles such as Renesans, Musica Antiqua Serbiana, VisAntiqua, Flauto Dolce, Belgrade Baroque, Melódi and others. Vocal and instrumental soloists that appeared at the Festival include prominent names such as baroque violinists Florian Deuter (Germany), Bojan Cicic (UK) and Ilia Korol (Austria); lutenists Simone Vallerotonda (Italy), Edin Karamazov (Croatia) and Michael Fields (UK); harpsichordists Aline Zylberajch (France), Steven Devine (UK) and Predrag Gosta (USA/Serbia); baroque trumpet players Friedemann Immer (Germany), Justin Bland (USA) and Luca di Marco (Italy); cornetto virtuoso David Brutti (Italy); soprano Evelyn Tubb (UK); contralto Marijana Mijanovic (Switzerland); tenors Kresimir Spicer (France) and Antonio Figueroa (Canada); baritone Christian Hilz (Germany);   baroque cellist André Laurent O’Neil (USA), and many others.

The Artistic Director of the Festival is Predrag Gosta, internationally renowned conductor, harpsichordist and early music scholar. Maestro Gosta has been the most crucial and influential person in developing the Festival from a small chamber event to its current renomé - in the recent years, the Festival has grown to a three-week event, with over 15 concerts in its main series, fringe concerts, as well as number of masterclasses and workshops in historical performance practice. A regular partner of the Festival is the New Belgrade Opera that has presented several baroque opera performances in conjunction with the Festival. Masterclasses and workshops have been organized in partnership with   the Belgrade Baroque Academy, which has been jointly led by Maestro Gosta and Marijana Mijanovic.

The next edition of the Festival will be presented from mid-May until the end of the first week of June 2020 in Belgrade and Novi Sad. Most concerts will be held at our principal venue - the Church of St. Peter in Belgrade, as well as the Kolarac Concert Hall. As last year, some concert performances will be repeated in other venues in Novi Sad.  Anyone interested to participate in the forthcoming edition of the Festival is invited to submit their inquiry to info@festivalranemuzike.com.

We look forward to seeing you at our concerts!
