“Music heritage of the Eastern Adriatic Coast” stands under a strong influence of Mediterranean, the cradle of European civilization. For centuries, it has offered music lovers and aficionados a wide range of Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and traditional music pieces. Split, Zadar, Rijeka, Sibenik, the island of Hvar, and, above all, Dubrovnik used to be among landmarks on cultural map of the then Europe. “Music of Old Adriatic” comprises spiritual music from the first recorded “Exaudi Christe” (12th century Zadar) to the motet from the collection “Sacrae cantionaes” by Ivan Lukacic (c. 1587-1638). The audiences have the opportunity to hear the first sonatas from the early 17th century, as well as the first record of Serbian folk songs about voivode Radosav of Severin recorded in the mid 16th century on the island of Hvar. This musical journey through Old Adriatic is enriched with madrigals, greghesche and frottolas from the 16th and the 17th century, as well as with three contredanses brought to Dubrovnik by Napoleon’s army in the early 19th century.
