VARAŽDIN BAROQUE EVENINGS, 22nd September to 5th October 2017
September 23, 2016 / Friday / 16:00
Varaždin cherishes and lovingly nurtures its Baroque splendour, and shows it with pride. And it is on that exuberant stage that the Varaždin Baroque Evenings have been taking place for no less than 40 years. With the beginning of autumn, the churches and concerts venues of this city are filled with the music by J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel, A. Vivaldi, H. Purcell, D. Scarlatti and other masters.
In the course of the four decades the festival has played host to a range of eminent soloist and ensembles of Baroque music. One of its special features are performances on authentic instruments. This celebration of music is accompanied by a number of other events which complement the cultural mission of the Festival. And to provide the full image of that hedonistic period, the City also offers the aromas and flavours of its gastronomy.
