ZAGREB, July 11, 2019 – The 49th edition of the Varaždin Baroque Evenings festival will take place from September 20 to October 1, with Sweden as this year’s partner country, the organisers announced on Thursday.

The festival will open in the Varaždin Cathedral with the Gothenburg Baroque Choir and Orchestra performing works by Vivaldi, Roman, Zelenka, and Handel under the baton of Magnus Kjjelson.

It will be one of 19 concerts to be held in Varaždin and Trakošćan Castle, while nine more will take place in other towns in Varaždin County, Međimurje County, Krapina-Zagorje County and Koprivnica-Križevci County, as well as in Ptuj, Slovenia.

The Gothenburg Baroque Choir and Orchestra will also perform on the second day of the festival to present the ancient music of Scandinavia.

The festival’s director Davor Bobić singled out a concert by the Romeo & Julia Koren ensemble who will perform The Decameron under the artistic leadership of Benoit Malmberg in the Croatian National Theatre in Varaždin on September 22.

Swedish Ambassador Diana Helen Madunić said she was looking forward to so many Swedish musicians coming to Varaždin.
