Fifth anniversary edition
The DARA String Festival presents a wide range of innovative, genre-bending music for string instruments, ranging from early contemporary music to experimental and freely improvised music.
DARA brings together high-caliber international artists from diverse musical backgrounds in a series of encounters to stimulate new thoughts and ideas for the advancement of individual and collective artistic endeavors.
The fifth edition of the festival will be celebrated with a special stage installation by Anna Kubelik.
The program will include works by Kaija Saariaho and Eres Holz, two world premieres by Sarah Nemtsov and Ying Wang, and improvisations and own compositions by the performers.
