Chamber music has a centuries-old tradition, and it continues to delight and enrich both performers and audiences. The line-up of famous and outstanding, internationally acclaimed musicians and teachers will perform a varied programme, not often heard in Slovenia, which draws from the Classical and Romantic periods and also the 20th century, from the joyful London Trio by Joseph Haydn and the Quintet for Piano and Wind Instruments, Op. 16 by the opera composer Gioachino Rossini, to Opus Number Zoo (1951), a work written by the then newly graduated young Italian composer Luciano Berio, in which he explored the theatrical aspect of musical performance. They will be performed by the former first oboe of the London Symphony Orchestra and dedicated teacher, the Swiss Emanuel Abbühl, estonian flutist Elizaveta Ivanova, who is currently studying at Hochschule für Musik under prof. Felix Renggli, the Brazilian clarinettist of European origin François Benda, whose discography includes recordings of Brahms’ entire opus for clarinet and works for clarinet and orchestra by Nielsen, Busoni, Rossini and Debussy, the first bassoon of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and sought-after teacher, the Norwegian Ole Kristian Dahl, the horn-player born in Switzerland but of Slovenian origin Zora Slokar, who currently plays in the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana from Lugano, and the Latvian pianist Elina Gotsouliak, a pupil of Rudolf Buchbinder with a broad repertoire from Baroque music played on the harpsichord to contemporary works.
