As a member of the Flamenco Symphonic Orchestra (OSFE) she has won numerous awards and performed at various festivals. Founded and directed by the cellist Klemen Hvala, the Ensemble Dissonance brings together renowned musicians and teachers working in Slovenian music institutions. The group performs chamber music, commissions new works and collaborates with various world-renowned and young artists. The musically colourful evening, marked by works from the Spanish classical repertoire, will also feature the Intermezzo from the Goyescas suite by Enrique Granados, inspired by the work of the famous painter Francisco de Goya, and will conclude with Manuel de Falla’s El Amor Brujo. This rhythmic ballet suite, blending elements of flamenco and Andalusian folk melodies, tells the story of a young Romani woman who is haunted by the ghost of her late husband.
