Mihael Paar is the annual winner of the Croatian Composers’ Society Prize for the best interpretation of a work by a Croatian composer at the Darko Lukić Tribune. The jubilee celebrated 40th Tribune finals hosted ten exquisite performing artists under 30 years of age who in the period from October last year till April this year, presented themselves with a solo recital in the distinguish Lisinski hall. Paar’s interpretation of the Suite by A.Klobučar, as confirmed by the jury compiled from the representatives of the artists, critics (Vjesnik Herald) organizer (HDGU/Lisinski) and composers (HDS), rates as the best and most versatile performance of a work by a Croatian composer in the 2006/07 season. The Darko Lukić Tribune itself excels as the oldest and most prestige competition for the Croatian artists which in its long history launched careers of some of the most acclaimed musicians in the region such as hornist Radovan Vlatković and soprano Ivanka Boljkovac. M.Paar’s award consists of a diploma, cash prize and the prizewinners’ concert held in the Lisinski hall on the 30th April. Both of his concerts (competitive and prizewinners’) were recorded and aired by the Croatian radio, while his award-winning performance of the Klobučar’s Suite will be exclusively featured on his Debut CD scheduled for 2008.
