Example text

Stevan Mokranjac founded the first, the Serbian Music School (later called ‘Mokranjac’) in 1899, while Binički inaugurated the second in 1911, from within the Singing Society “Stanković”. 27 The opening of Belgrade Music Academy had to wait until 1937, when Hristić, Stojanović and, in particular, Kosta Manojlović, managed to provide formal and material conditions for its foundation. However, by the beginning of World War II the Academy had still not succeeded in educating a single generation of graduates!

Bandur, M. Vukdragović, P. Milošević, P. Stojanović, M. Živković, appeared with the Philharmonic.  They culminated in 1936; Hristić was shortly replaced by Brezovšek and Vukdragović, until 1937, when Lovro Matačić took the leading position.  Famous artists performed with the Philharmonic: pianists Alfred Cortot (1926), Carlo Zecchi (1932), Alexandar Borowsky (1936), Nikolai Orlov (1939), violinist Váša Příhoda (1933), cello players Enrico Mainardi (1933, 1934, 1937, and 1940) and Pierre Fournier (1935) (Turlakov 1994).

This amateur orchestra, made up almost exclusively of university professors and students, contributed largely to the popularisation of art music and the education of a wider audience. Thanks to Milojević, themed concerts accompanied by introductory lectures presented the numerous listeners with the characteristics of music of earlier epochs and offered a basic knowledge of contemporary trends, especially in Serbia. A contribution to the generic and stylistic variety of Belgrade concert seasons was made by Collegium at concert evenings dedicated to the music of baroque composers (Turlakov 1986).
