Goran Bojčevski holds a master’s degree in clarinet from Salzburg’s famous Mozarteum, University of Music and Dramatic Arts, where he studied with Alois Brandhofer, graduating summa cum laude. His CV includes concert appearances at important venues throughout Europe and successful performances of his own works, including at the Mozarteum – he has composed works both for the university’s academic curriculum and for its wind orchestra, the Bläserphilharmonie Mozarteum Salzburg. His most recent ballet Death and the Dervish, a production of the Croatian National Theatre in Split, received a nomination for best original music at the Croatian music awards. The clarinettist and composer returns to the Ljubljana Festival with his new project „Classical meets Balkan Nuevo”, which he describes as representing a special kind of bridge between what he is and what he has learnt to date. It connects his Macedonian roots to the strict rules of classical music that he has learnt over the course of years of training, a link that is also characteristic of the musical style that he calls „Balkan Nuevo”. The project focuses above all on original classical music coloured by „ethnic” rhythms ranging from the waltz to complex time signatures such as 20/8. The programme also includes reworking of the traditional Macedonian song „Zajdi, zajdi” („Set, Set [O Sun]”).
