Last year's Zagreb Summer Evenings offered exclusive concert evenings and top level performances. All visiting artists were met with enthusiasm and received standing ovations. This year, we have done our best to take it a step further!
This will be the first time for great international names, such as the famous wind ensemble Les Vents Francais with Croatian hornist Radovan Vlatković, renowned baroque ensemble Les Arts Florissants and William Christie, the Pavel Haas String Quartet and the Eggner Brothers piano trio, to perform in Zagreb. We will also see the performances of local audience's favorites – violinist Kristóf Baráti, pianist Enrico Pace and guitarist Srđan Bulat, who recently became the Master of Arts at the Royal Academy in London. He will perform during the Young Croatian Stars section presenting Croatia's most successful young musicians. I am particularly looking forward to concerts by Les Vents Francais and Les Arts Florissants as a part of the important 2015 Rendez-vous French Festival in Croatia.
I am sure that the quality of the festival, some of the world's best musicians, as well as the diverse program this year will once again confirm the status of Zagreb Summer Evenings as one of the most important summer festivals in this part of Europe.
