Meeting point: Rector´s Palace
Concert of Symphony Orchester in Rector´s Palace
The renowned Croatian clarinetist Marija Pavlović has been Artist-in-Residence of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra since 2018. Together with the Orchestra she has founded a new festival, Stradun Classic, a new festival for orchestra, chamber music and soloists.
The idea of this festival is to have a top chamber music festival in Dubrovnik, with world-class musicians who will perform in chamber and as soloists as well. Members of the Orchestra also have the opportunity to play chamber music with the guest artists.
Some of the musicians who appeared in festival are oboist Tom Owen, bassoonist Pieter Nuytten, hornist Boštjan Lipovšek, violinist Daniel Rowland, cellist Maja Bogdanović, double bassist Zoran Marković, pianist Martina Filjak, cellist Monika Leskovar maestro Darrell Ang and maestro Marc Tardue - Principal Conductor of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra.
One of the most significant monuments of profane architecture on the Croatian coast, the Rectors Palace, was the administrative centre of the Dubrovnik Republic. Its style is basically Gothic, with the Renaissance and Baroque reconstructions. The capitals were carved in Renaissance style by Pietro di Martino of Milan, whose capital with Aesculapius has been preserved on the right half-column of the portico. . Although the design of Michelozzo was unfortunately rejected, his influence in the restoration of the facade and portico, mainly in Renaissance style, can not be denied. After the earthquake of 1667 the atrium was partially reconstructed with an impressive Baroque staircase.
Today the Rectors Palace houses the Cultural-historic Department of the Dubrovnik Museum with exhibition halls arranged to display the original setting with antique furniture and objects for daily use, as well as paintings by local and Italian masters. The Museum also guards a collection of old coins used in the Dubrovnik Republic, a collection of arms and utensils of Domus Christi Pharmacy from the 15th century.
Apart from being exceptionally beautiful, the Rectors Palace Atrium has excellent acoustics, and is often used as a concert venue.
