The 34th Slovenian Music Days marks the centenary of the Conservatory of Music in Ljubljana and the eightieth anniversary of the Academy of Music. In doing so, it highlights the importance and scope of the establishment of musical education in Ljubljana at a level that enabled professionalisation. It was in Ljubljana that the first public music school in Slovenia was founded, in 1816. Later on, in 1875, this school incorporated into the city’s Philharmonic Society (Philharmonisches Gesellschaft). The latter institution, founded in Ljubljana in 1794 by a group of prominent citizens, frequently performed the works of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827), including his Pastoral Symphony. The Philharmonic Society archives contained a manuscript score of this symphony, today to be found in the Music Collection of the National and University Library. It is a copy made in 1808 of the original autograph score used for the Sixth Symphony’s premiere performance – the so-called Große Akademie – in Vienna on 22 December 1808. What makes the Ljubljana score of Beethoven’s Sixth so valuable, besides its authenticity, are the composer’s own handwritten notes (for example the title “Sinfonia pastorale”) and corrections (mainly regarding articulation). Beethoven is also one of the most eminent honorary members of Ljubljana’s Philharmonic Society. On being appointed an honorary member – the date on the diploma conferring the appointment is 15 March 1819 – he wrote a friendly letter of acknowledgement, dated 4 May of the same year. The performance of his Pastoral Symphony to mark the bicentenary of his honorary membership will be conducted by Simon Dvoršak, who is leading the project of transcribing the Ljubljana score of the symphony at the Ljubljana Academy of Music. The concert programme, which also includes works by three major Slovene symphonic composers, features the two largest ensembles at the Ljubljana Academy of Music, which this year celebrates its eightieth anniversary. Pesem jeseni was the last symphonic work composed by Anton Lajovic (1878–1960). It was he who succeeded in formally incorporating the Philharmonic Society into the Glasbena Matica music society – an organisation involved in all aspects of musical performance and creation, music publishing and music education for the Slovene population. The establishment of the Conservatory in 1919 represented the realisation of long-held aspirations for music education at a higher level, while its transformation into an Academy in 1939 meant that Ljubljana at last gained an institution offering university-level education in music. It was while studying at the Conservatory in Ljubljana in 1931 that Matija Bravničar (1897–1977) composed his solemn prelude for mixed choir, organ and symphony orchestra Hymnus slavicus; its premiere performance was given to mark the 60th anniversary of the Glasbena Matica. Another student of the Ljubljana Conservatory was Marijan Kozina (1907–1966), the composer of the symphonic poem Davnina. He was also active at the Maribor Glasbena Matica (which celebrates the centenary of its foundation in 2019), as the conductor of its choir and orchestra and the head of its school, as a professor of composition at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana, and as the first director of the post-war Slovenian Philharmonic, which in 2018 posthumously appointed him an honorary member.
