Bernardo Brizani and Miha Haas will perform works by Boccherini, Beethoven, Schumann, Schubert and Paganini in the intimate atmosphere of the Knights’ Hall. Cellist Brizani was born in Ljubljana in 1993 and began playing the cello at the age of five, soon showing signs of the remarkable talent that enabled him to enrol at the Ljubljana Academy of Music to study cello as soon he finished primary school. Parallel with his studies in Ljubljana, he trained at the Scuola di Musica di Fiesole near Florence (Italy) with the celebrated cellist Natalia Gutman, and in 2016 completed his master’s degree at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold (Germany). Despite his youth, he has won numerous prizes and performed at important musical events both at home and abroad. Joining him on the piano is Miha Haas, who began his musical training at the Ljubljana Conservatory before continuing at the Ljubljana Academy of music with the renowned pianist Dubravka Tomšič Srebotnjak and completing a master’s degree at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels with Aleksandar Madžar. He has performed both as soloist and as a member of various chamber ensembles both in Slovenia and elsewhere in Europe and in the USA.
