    24th International Review of Composers (September 24-30 2015 )

    The Festival took place under the title of Muzička kutija / Music Box. Therefore, the Festival’s programme included pieces inspired by the peculiar sound of music boxes, their mechanisms, the specific structure of their musical contents, based on repetition and deceleration.
    However, the title, Music Box,carries a symbolic meaning as well and may accordingly evoke the often mysterious contents of all kinds of boxes and chests, wherein precious things are kept; the children’s toy ‘Jack in the Box’, which uses the element of surprise to encourage children’s curiosity in exploring new things, as well as Pandora’s box, the box of all evils, figuratively speaking, in this case music-exploratory endeavours that are perhaps not greeted with universal acceptance by a wide auditorium, but whose valuable accomplishment nonetheless enrich today’s musical language and show the path toward the future.
    The Review opened with a concert of pianist Nada Kolundžija and the ensemble Music Material Processing Plant, who will use an unusual set of instruments, part of which was made especially for this occasion, to present 20th-century works that have already become classics by now, as well as new pieces by contemporary composers. In two concerts, Construction Site New Music Ensemble presented works for different kinds of chamber ensembles, while Mixed String Quartet and Metamorphosis ensemble performed pieces for string quartet and string orchestra. Concert of the trio Movement with a programme of the most recent pieces by Serbian composers was broadcast on RTS 3 and Belgrade Radio 3.
    Project of Themus ensemble, entitled The Box, presented a pieces of music theatre based on a musical table as its main instrument, ‘played’ by hands and various objects, along with body artand occasional use of classical instruments. The Lithuanian ensemble LEN and Romanian group devotioModerna presented contemporary music from their respective countries.
