A striking alignment in temperament, tone and stylish shaping

Rowland Bogdanovic Duo

Dubrovački Vjesnik (Dubrovnik Herald)

One week of Dubrovnik’s rich and vibrant musical autumn at the Rector’s Palace belongs, as of last year, to the Stradun Classic Festival. The festival operates under the banner of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra and was conceived by clarinetist Marija Pavlović. This year, the festival comprised five concerts featuring many excellent musicians.

Handel’s Passacaglia in G minor, arranged by J. Halvorsen, was performed by violinist Daniel Rowland and cellist Maja Bogdanovic.

Their instrumental colours blended wonderfully, and we were particularly fascinated by the consistency of the dynamic gradations. They were equally focussed in all aspects of the performance, so it seemed as if Rowland and Bogdanovic were breathing together.

‘Castillo Interior’ by P. Vasks was also performed by Rowland and Bogdanovic…

And again, this duo showed a striking alignment in temperament, tone and stylish shaping.
