A special contribution to the celebration of the orchestra’s jubilee, came out of print on June 13th – the monograph „Centenary of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra“. 

Asja Radonjić and Danica Maksimović, who have been the program editors of the Philharmonic for nearly 20 years, are the authors of this edition.

The monograph, divided into ten chapters, describes the history of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra from its humble beginnings to a modern European ensemble.

Over the first 100 years, the orchestra has gone a long way, falling and rising several times, touring the globe but also living in isolation due to sanctions and war; working in cruel conditions but also receiving ovations in the world’s greatest halls, temples of art and culture, the authors write at the beginning of the publication.

Besides serving as a valuable resource for future researchers of the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, the history of the institution is presented in a very spirited manner with numerous interesting facts compiled in the Did You Know section. Also included are messages of one hundred notable personalities who have written about what this institution means to them.

The monograph will be available for purchase from this September, at our ticket office at Studentski trg 11.
