Križanke Summer Theatre

The roof of the Križanke Summer Theatre was damaged by late snowfall in 2016. As a result, seating in the venue is currently exposed to the elements. Seats in rows 9A, 14 and 15, seats in the balconies and seats located by statues and towers have a restricted view of the stage.

The extensive bibliography of the renowned Slovene musicologist, musician, teacher and clergyman Dr Edo Škulj runs to more than a thousand items and includes scholarly monographs, reports, technical and popular articles, lexicons, and so on. Much of his research has focused on the life and work of the late Renaissance composer Jacobus Gallus, on whom he has written several books. He was also closely involved in the publication of Gallus’ entire oeuvre in 20 volumes. He is a noted expert on church music, Slovenia’s leading organologist, and the doyen of research on Slovene organ builders and pipe organs in Slovenia, on which he has published several monographs. He and Jurij Dobravec (in the role of photographer and data analyst) have combined their knowledge and experience in an extensive work in which they present pipe organs in Slovenia. Information on the locations, builders, stop dispositions and predominant use of these organs, along with notable milestones in their history, is complemented by descriptions and photographs. “En face” photographs reveal to readers the beauty of organ facades, which we only rarely get the opportunity to see as a whole. The introductory chapters and a brief history of organ building are followed by a catalogue of 1,094 instruments. The book ends with a synthesis that reveals the wealth of organ heritage in Slovenia in words and pictures. The book also features QR codes that take readers to the Ars organi Sloveniae website (www.orgle.si), where additional information is available on individual organs. This innovative feature means that this traditional book project is also adapted to the digital future and offers a multimedia experience.
