Razgovori

Ravnopravna igra dva umjetnički snažna ansambla

02.09.2012 Davor Hrvoj
Moja zamisao predviđa generacijski skok iz tekuće sadašnjosti u skoru budućnost, u čemu mi i povijest umjetnosti daje pravo, jer neočekivane simbioze rađaju i nove neočekivane amalgame. U toj situaciji dolazi do poništavanja zasebnih glazbenih idioma, stvara se nov kompleks koji tek kreće na obećavajući put.

Divim se mašti, ali poštujem znanje

02.09.2012 Davor Hrvoj
U razgovoru povodom koncerta kojim će, 13. će rujna 2012. u KD Lisinski, obilježiti pedeset i pet godina godina glazbenog djelovanja i sedamdeset i pet godina života Silvije Glojnarić govori o programu koncerta, ali i najvažnijim smjernicama svojeg stvaralaštva.

Umjetnost nastaje kad u sebi pronađete istinu

25.02.2004 Davor Hrvoj
Definitivna varijanta je da je umjetnost ipak istina. Kad čovjek nađe istinu nači će i umjetnost, a istinu najprije mora pronaći u sebi. Treba naprije upoznati sebe i utvrditi je li to što radi stvarno tako, odražava li njegovu osobnost.
