At the height of summer, chamber music lovers will be treated by Slovenian musicians who have pursued their careers in prestigious Slovenian and foreign orchestras. The performance by Ensemble.si will include the violinists Tanja Sonc (Zurich Chamber Orchestra) and Matjaž Bogataj (Bavarian State Opera), violist Gea Pantner Volfand (RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra), cellist Jaka Stadler (Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra), flautist Brina Kafol Žust (Berliner Symphoniker), clarinettist Tomaž Močilnik (Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra), bassoonist Tonko Huljev (Hof Symphony Orchestra) and horn player Andrej Žust (Berliner Philharmoniker). The programme to be played by this ensemble of select musicians will include works from the treasure chest of the long, Romantic 19th century, which we do not hear often on Slovenian concert stages. The Nocturne concertante in G minor by the French composer Louis Emmanuel Jadin will introduce one of fourteen string quartets by the Czech Antonín Dvořák, which are considered pearls of chamber music. The concert will be rounded off by the Italian serenade for string quartets by Hugo Wolf, a composer of the late Romantic period who was born in Slovenj Gradec, and Octet Op. 80, by Heinrich Hofmann, a composer of German origin whose work is unjustly forgotten.
