RADAR Festival

10.08.2018г. - 13.08.2018г.

In its 4th edition, Radar festival opens new horizons in music and dares beyond borders of genres, art forms and perceptions.
Artists from the legendary German label ECM open the festival on 3 August at the Varna City Gallery. The duo of Anja Lechner and Franҫois Couturier presents their album MODERATO CANTABILE, dedicated to the mystics Komitas, Gurdjieff and Mompou. Two brilliant musicians explore sacred depths of art that had been left at the margins of music history and brought to light for the audiences of RADAR this year.
Charismatic actress and singer Militsa Gladnishka presents her new project TITANIC. Together with her band she tells the story of the last hours of the famous Titanic orchestra that kept playing until their very end. A concert, a theater performance, a comedy and a tragedy at the same time, a story that loves life!
NOTES ON HOPPER is a musical performance sung by Judith Scholte and played by Dimitar Bodurov and Nils van Haften. They tell a story about the life and works of famous American painter Edward Hopper, seen through the eyes of his wife.
