Varaždin Baroque Evenings arose from two main ideas. First - to research

deeper end wider Croatian music heritage of the 17th and 18th century, especially

music heritage of ‘the most baroque’ town in Croatia as Varaždin is considered.

Second - to perform the most important European works of music from the

baroque era and its presentation – often for the first time in former Yugoslavia

– to Croatian public. For that purpose Varaždin baroque festival gathered Varaždin

professional musicians, amateurs and students of Varaždin School of Music.

Thus, performers from Varaždin can be placed in one of three categories.

In the first group of musicians are students of Varaždin School of Music and their

professors, as their mentors and performers themselves. After all, the initial idea for

the festival came from the series of concerts with which School of Music celebrated the

140th anniversary of founding.

The second group consist music amateurs and pupils from Varaždin primary and

secondary schools gathered in schools choirs, instrumental ensembles and amateur

music societies. As well as School of Music, they are permanently present at VBE. Their

cooperation with VBE include programs for special events, participation in festival projects

and independent projects.

In the third group are professional musicians, either born in Varaždin or have lived

and worked in Varaždin. They are in the heart of festival from the very beginning. In

the first fifteen years of the festival musicians like Nada Puttar - Gold, Ruža Pospiš -

Baldani or Jurica Murai were the most active performers at the festival and at the same

time members of the programme board.

It is unquestionable that the VBE are the cause of increased interest for European

and Croatian music of baroque era, the cause of formation a number of ensambles and

the starting impulse in thinking about historically informed performance in Croatia.
