Creative women of Montenegro present: “European Music of Montenegrin Cultural Diplomacy”

On Thursday, 28 September, the audience in Cetinje will have the opportunity to hear, for the first time, musical pieces that are part of the National Museum collection, composed by European composers and inspired by 19th century Montenegro. Composers from Germany, Austria, Poland, Italy, and France have composed pieces, dedicated to Montenegro or members of the royal family, for various musical ensembles. The concert will feature the premiere of Danilo’s Waltz, the composition “King of Montenegro,” and a composition dedicated to Victor Emmanuel III and Queen Elena of Italy.


The orchestra, consisting of students from the Music Academy in Cetinje and members of the Montenegrin Symphony Orchestra, will perform at 20:00 at the Government House. The concert and the exhibition are part of the project “European Music of Montenegrin Cultural Diplomacy,” organised by the Creative Women of Montenegro Foundation with the aim of revitalising the European-Montenegrin music and cultural heritage. Additionally, it addresses the issue of the lack of research on the mentioned topic and the revival of Montenegro’s cultural diplomacy. The project is implemented within the ReLOaD2 programme, funded by the European Union, and implemented by the UNDP in cooperation with local self-governments, including the Royal Capital of Cetinje.


The orchestral performance will be accompanied by a video collage composed of little-known short videos and photographs from diplomatic events at the court during the Kingdom of Montenegro.
