The exhibition “Music Box”

The “Music Box” is an exhibition for the urban culture of Rousse, formed under the impact of the 19th-century European classics. The young people of Rousse, who have graduated music education in Europe, as well as the established choirs and symphonic orchestras, are changing not only tradition, but also shaping a new type of musical though. Concerts, balls and dancing nights are manifesting the new “bon tone” of the Modern time in the 20th century, added by the mass culture through a gramophone, cinema and radio. The exhibition presents part of the interior of the home music saloons, private belongings of notable musical figures from Rousse, as well as a number of evidences for the musical past of the town.
