Julian Rachlin & Friends Chamber Music Festival

During the months of August and September, a series of six chamber concerts are held at Dubrovnik's Rector's Palace. Violinist Julian Rachlin, without doubt one of the most exciting and highly respected violinists of our time, hosts the event and is joined by other musical greats such as cellist Mischa Maisky, violinist Janine Jansen, and pianist Itamar Golan, to name a few. Rachlin has also developed relationships with some of the most prestigious conductors and orchestras in the world and every year some of them appear at the festival with him. The works of Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Shumann, Bach and Shostakovich are performed to an almost-always sold out audience - a must for all lovers of classical music. Tickets for the 2012 festival are being sold in the Dominican Monastery at the end of the Stradun every day from 10am to 8pm. If you are a fan of classical music, and of Julian Rachlin in particular, it is worth timing your visit to Dubrovnik to coincide with this wonderful celebration of classical music.
