The Émigré's Waltz, part BEMUS 2007, was a collection of nine pieces written by five Serbian female composers, now living and working abroad. On this occasion these nine works have been performed in Belgrade for the first time. With the art situation after the 1960's being marked by a lack of dominant thinking and hierarchy there was an acute diversity of genres and styles. As The Émigré's Waltz, with the selection of both the authors and their works seems to reflect a present-day snapshot of music and art in general, these aspects were recognized and explored in this programme with a variety of extremely different poetics. The article also investigates the presence of Serbian folklore and the way it influenced the work of the featured composers. The concert owed its exclusivity to the fact that only pieces by female composers currently holding immigrant status were performed. This with their growing recognition in international musical circles and the evidence of Serbian folklore in their works, resembled the way valse (the dance that has its origins in Austrian folklore) once established its place on the international scene and became part of international heritage.
