The DARA String Festival presents a wide range of innovative, genre-bending music for string instruments, ranging from early contemporary music to experimental and freely improvised music.
DARA transcends genre boundaries, bringing together high-caliber international artists from diverse musical backgrounds in a series of encounters to stimulate new thoughts and ideas for the advancement of individual and collective artistic endeavors.
This year we celebrate the fifth edition of the festival at the beautiful Delphi Theater with a special stage installation by Anna Kubelik. The program will include works by Kaija Saariaho and Eres Holz, two world premieres by Sarah Nemtsov and Ying Wang, and improvisations/own compositions by the performers. All documentary videos from previous years will be available online throughout August and will be on loop at our venue during the festival dates.
