Abstract

In the decades after the end of WW2 and the establishment of the communist regime in Yugoslavia, cultural isolation affected Serbia in more or less the same way as the other five federal republics. This article examines aspects typical of that period, such as the level of musical exchange with the foreign, i.e. Western world; the creative responses of Serbian composers of all generations to post-war avantgarde movements; guest concerts of foreign musicians and ensembles in Serbia and the international tours of Serbian musicians; repertoires on concert and opera programs; and the legacy of the period.
