Serbian choral music from the first half of the 20th century
Keywords:Stevan Stojanovic Mokranjac, Rukoveti, Serbian music education
AbstractIn the period of the building up of Serbian musical life, the first professional musicians were foreign artists, and then, in the second half of the century, domestic professional personnel were also formed. Serbian choral composers were educated in various European centres, such as Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Munich, Rome and Leipzig. The work of numerous Serbian singing societies in the 1830s paved the way for the quality of some choirs, especially those in Belgrade, to be noticed on the international scene in the era of Stevan Stojanović Mokranjac. When the era of S. S. Mokranjac was over, according to many, a "new era" for Serbian art began, and the tradition of the time was not only not abandoned, but also expanded and flourished.
