The festival began on December 10th with a performance by composer and pianist Aleksandar Simic and his Serafimi ensemble, playing Simic's compositions Under one Roof, Tango for Her and Zodiac.

Simic’s musical pieces, as well as the performance by Serafimi, erase divisions of music as ‘serious’ and ‘popular’ in an attempt to bring a young audience closer to classical values.

Uros Dojcinovic and the Rocher string quartet also performed on December 12th, with a concert for guitar and strings including compositions by Predrag Milojkovic, Petar Stajic, Dragan Knezevic and Gisle Krogseth.

Concerts included in the festival programme will take place every Wednesday until the end of December, starting at 8pm.

On December 19th the young pianist Ivan Ljuba (known as the first winner of the Serbian Big Brother) will perform several pieces under the theme The Art of Minimalism, including Metamorphosis and Études both by Philip Glass. Ljuba will also perform music from the movie The Piano, written by Michael Nyman, Für Alina by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, as well as Piano Phase by Steve Reich.

On December 26th the Belgrade Philharmonic Brass Quintet will play Trois pieces breves by Jacques Ibert, Kleine Kamermusic by Paul Hindemith, Brass Quintet no 2. by Miguel del Aguila, as well as Eugène Bozza’s Scherzo for Brass Quintet.
