By  Jun 07, 2018

After the Four Seasons Concert by Dmitry Sinkovsky and the String Composition of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, the cycle of Baroque music "Orlando Furioso" continues on Friday, June 8th and the performance of the vocal ensemble Antiphonus. The concert will take place in the atrium of the Rector's Palace beginning at 9 pm.

Excellent Antiphonus with its maestro Tomislav Facini and accompanied by the lute player Elise La Marca, for this occasion is preparing a concert that the Dubrovnik audience did not have the opportunity to hear earlier: Songs of the British Isles. These are the folk songs of Ireland, Scotland, then of the works that were made in the palaces, but also those created for Shakespeare's pieces, but also those works of John Downland, Henry Purcell and Robert Johnsons written for lute and voices.

Since its start in 2008, Antiphonus is doing its best to win and thrill its audience, at all Croatian festivals, numerous cities and abroad, with concerts, ranging from the Middle Ages to contemporary authors. The ensemble's specialty is the flexible fact that they perform its repertoire like a chamber choir, even when it comes to complex vocal-instrumental combinations.

You can also listen to Antiphonus on Saturday, June 9th, with the chamber composition of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra under the guidance of conductor Tomislav Facini.

The end of the baroque music cycle organized by the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra will be held on Tuesday, June 12th, with works by Bach and Händel.
