DANI BOŠNJAK ONLINE

We invite you to an online concert of the renowned Croatian flutist Dani Bošnjak on Friday, 28 May from 6 PM, which will be broadcast on the MBZ’s YouTube channel.
At the concert featuring pieces by three female and male composers of different generations, Bošnjak will present a wide range of sounds ranging from piccolo to bass flute, interlaced with electronics. You will hear the pieces by Romanian authors, mother and daughter, Doina Rotaru and Diana Rotaru, Finnish-French composer Kaija Saariaho (a composition inspired by bird flight and the writing of Saint-John Perse), as well as a piece by the Biennale founder Milko Kelemen – as Bošnjak put it, that piece, Fabliau I, has been “following him around his whole life”. Dani Bošnjak will also give the Croatian premiere of Mixórdia IV, Transmitting by Tomislav Oliver and the first performance of Burlesque, the miniatures for piccolo by Dubravko Detoni.

The Female Heroes of Acousmatic Music is a collaborative program between the MBZ and the INA GRM (Groupe de la Recherche Musicale at the National Audiovisual Institute in Paris) and is dedicated to the female authors of what is known as "loudspeaker music," a type of electronic music where “the sound source cannot be accurately identified, so the visitor focuses on the actual listening experience,” as described by the MBZ director Margareta Ferek-Petrić.
