Ensemble Dissonance, which brings together musicians from the Dissonance string quartet, the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra, will transport listeners to Brandenburg, the German federal state that has a special place in European history and art, with music that serves as a document of a time and space. In 1721, in the hope of acquiring a new position, Johann Sebastian Bach dedicated six Brandenburg Concertos to the margrave. Employing similar instrumentation and concerto grosso form to Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, the American composer Samuel Barber wrote his Capricorn Concerto while serving in the army in 1943. The subtle counterpoint that emanates from the Brandenburg Gate through jazz pianist Dave Brubeck, connects modernity with the past, as do, in a unique way, the works of the Georgian composer Giya Kancheli and the Baroque composers Vivaldi and Telemann. In the Concerto for piccolo trumpet and strings, the soloist will be the famous German trumpeter Reinhold Friedrich, who is also a virtuoso on the Baroque trumpet. The performances will be conducted by the charismatic violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky, a regular guest of Ljubljana Festival, who operates independently as a violinist, conductor and artistic director.
