After the Ministry of Culture declined to financially support 23rd International Review of Composers, CAS requested and received letters of support from ECSA (Alfons Karabuda, president, and Lucy Mattera, secretary general); Sven Hartberger, director of the Klangforum Wien orchestra; Jean-Luc Menet, leader of the Alternance ensemble from Paris; Dušan Bavdek (head of the Composition and Theory Department, Music Academy of Ljubljana, and board member of the European Composers’ Forum), and from the Managing Board of the Composers Association of Macedonia. The letters were published in our leading daily newspaper “Politika.” May 8: media promotion of the Anthology of Serbian Popular Music – The Time of Schlager (1930-1960), the first edition of this genre ever to be published in Serbia.

The principal line of the program was devoted to the laureates of the Mokranjac Award. On the program were also guest ensembles, the Forbidden City Chamber Orchestra and Quo Vadis Trio from Ljubljana. As part of an established tradition at the opening of the festival, the Mokranjac Award was bestowed on Vladan Radovanović for the composition Sideral for mixed choir, piano and strings. The award is given for the best work premiered during the previous year. October 3: CAS received a Letter of Commendation from Radio Belgrade at the celebration of the 90th anniversary of the latter.

October 31, CAS hall: concert of the composer and guitarist Uroš Martinović, featuring works by Vojislav Ivanović, Napoléon Coste and Isaac Albeniz. November 9: CAS hosted a meeting between composers and vocal pedagogues. The meeting emphasized the need for writing new songs for elementary and secondary schools. The teachers presented the criteria for composing solo songs for different levels of education. The composers were requested to write pieces that the CAS would publish and thus refresh and enlarge the existing literature for young singers. *** For the purpose of the concert to be held in Paris in 2015 to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the discovery of Nazi concentration camps, scores of the composers Vojislav Vučković, Predrag Milošević, Radomir Petrović and Zlatan Vauda were sent to the organizers. The said composers were camp inmates during World War II or otherwise suffered from the Nazis. Collaboration was initiated with Oliver Triendl, art director of the Kempten Chamber Music Festival. Milan Mihajlović from Belgrade was the composer in residence, and five more works by Serbian composers were performed. Contact was established with Maya Jordan who teaches piano in London. She included Six Dances by Serbian composer Vasilije Mokranjac as a compulsory piece in the music school competition in London. A series of presentation of contemporary Serbian compositions was launched under the title of New Soundscapes. Musicologists, performers and composers themselves are given the opportunity to speak about their most recent achievements, such as attracted attention of the series editor, composer Ivana Stefanović.</p>
