These days in Brussels we’re experiencing wonderful works of Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbarán at the expo at BOZAR.
Each Thursday at 19h there is a concert in the exposition space where young musicians are performing music from Zurbarán’s age and finding connection between he’s paintings and music of he’s contemporaries. I will, along with my colleagues, take a part in those concert series.
The last concert I gave was with Belgrade Baroque ensemble at the XVIII Belgrade Early Music Festival and beyond having a great pleasure playing with very dear people and in front of a great audience, the concert was quite a struggle with the weather conditions - extreme heat (up to almost 40°C) with huge humidity in the church that day. Why I say this is because I was amazed by the absolute hero of that day - colleague Katarina Djukic- Popovic who lost 2 E strings on her violin during the concert and one before it. Finally she bravely played the Musical Offering on a colleagues violin.
