"This fesitval is a wonderful venture… diverse, colorful, exciting and dynamic,
an almost marathon friendship between numerous artists and piano sound lovers."
Nera Beljanski, professor at the "Isidor Bajić“ musical school
The city of Novi Sad, which proudly boasts its famous pianistic tradition,
becomes the true piano city for one weekend in September and welcomes you to
the marvelous festival appropriately called the Piano City. The festival was
founded by a pianist Andreas Kern in 2010 and Novi Sad became the 4th town in
Piano City community - Berlin - Milan - Napoli - Novi Sad - Palermo -Trieste -
The idea of the festival is to audio-transform and ennoble the urban space -
the sound of a piano moves from concert halls to parks, squares, apartments and
gardens. Also, it gives the unique opportunity to every pianist - young or
professional - to present all the beauty of this instrument to all citizens.
Besides classical music, the visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy jazz
concerts, movie themes, improvised compositions, world music and original pieces.
The long forgotten environment of home piano recitals will certainly be a special experience
not to miss! You can check the complete program on the festival's website listed below.
