Soloist:

Nika Gorič, soprano

The concert evening Death and the Maiden places the spotlight on the vocal-instrumental works of two Romantic composers who are among the most notable composers of lieder: Hugo Wolf and Franz Schubert. Six songs for female voice and the string orchestra and Death and the Maiden for soprano and the string orchestra have been arranged by the artistic director of the Slovene Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra, Klemen Hvala. The fourteen-member ensemble was founded in 1993 with support from the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia. Over the two decades it has been active, it has given more than 400 concerts at home and abroad. Its repertoire includes works from all stylistic periods, with a special emphasis on works by Slovene composers. All this confirms the high quality and the role and importance of the Slovene Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra in the culture of musical performance both in Slovenia and more widely in Europe. The soloist is the soprano Nika Gorič, who trained at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz before going on to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where she completed a master’s degree and, last year, a doctorate. In June 2017 she received the Royal Academy of Music’s most prestigious honour, the Queen’s Commendation for Excellence, awarded to the best all-round student of the year.
