Renowned Croatian clarinetist Marija Pavlović, Artist Director of the annual Stradun Classic chamber music festival, brings to Dubrovnik innovative programs performed by a roster of outstanding international artists with whom she maintains a long-time collaboration.

Each program is conceived with a unique theme, combining beloved chamber works with lesser-known compositions that will bring freshness even to experienced listeners. The repertoire regularly includes pieces by Croatian composers, thereby promoting local culture and identity, with a spirit of international cooperation.


As Artist-in-Residence of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra since 2018, Marija Pavlović has also created the Stradun Classic Festival Orchestra, which gives the DSO musicians and guests artists the fantastic opportunity to perform side-by-side, led by the legendary concertmaster and artistic leader, Gordan Nikolić. For 20 years, Gordan was the Concertmaster of the London Symphony Orchestra and is currently the Artistic Leader of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra. He will be leading the Festival Orchestra as Concertmaster “primus inter pares” in the special concert on the 1st of October, 2022.

Performances take place in the extraordinary setting of the Rector’s Palace, a site included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
