SONEMUS Concert - 20th Birthday

We are honored and pleased to invite you to the SONEMUS concert - 20th BIRTHDAY.

At the beginning of November 2001, on the initiative of the Bosnian composer Alisher Sijarić and the Swiss flutist Boris Previšić, the first SONEMUS FEST was held in Sarajevo, where local and foreign musicians performed works of contemporary art music. This was followed by 20 years in which SONEMUS organized and performed over a hundred concerts, the SONEMUS ensemble performed in a dozen European countries at renowned festivals; some of the leading soloists and ensembles of today performed as part of SONEMUS FEST; the basic works of 20th and 21st century art music in Bosnia and Herzegovina were premiered, as well as numerous compositions by living domestic and foreign composers; a large number of workshops and educational programs for students of music academies in the country and abroad have been realized. Through its activities, SONEMUS tried to present to the domestic public recent musical creativity and performance in the world, but also to put Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina on the map of artistic and cultural centers where relevant artistic music is created and performed according to the highest standards. The concert program, which celebrates 20 years of work and activities, will include works by Luciano Beria, Brian Ferneyhough, Mirza Gološ, Toshio Hosokawa, Hanan Hadžajlić, Ališer Sijarić and Anton von Webern performed by soloists of the SONEMUS Ensemble and the Student Academy of the Music Academy of the University of Sarajevo. Due to the limited number of places, please announce your arrival at the concert by phone: 062 102 569 (Tel / SMS / Viber / WhatsApp). The aesthetics of contemporary art music cannot be seen outside its ethical position. It presupposes openness to different opinions, explores boundaries and margins and does not try to confirm "truths", but always points out its own multi-layered nature. That is why we care that this type of music is heard in Bosnia and Herzegovina as well, so that we can open our ears wide.
