In Ljubljana’s Križanke, Oto Pestner will take a walk through his rich and varied musical journey with the RTV Slovenia Big Band and the guests of the evening, touching on original songs and covers that have most marked his past. Over the course of his remarkable career, Pestner has released more than 45 solo albums, 45 albums with the New Swing Quartet and more than 30 albums with the Alpenoberkrainer (some of which sold more than a million copies). He has also worked on more than 50 other albums by other artists. As composer, arranger, producer and performer, he has collaborated on more than 5,000 compositions. Over the last 56 years Oto Pestner has performed at around 10,000 concerts in Slovenia and around the world, most of them with the New Swing Quartet or the Alpenoberkrainer or as a soloist. Križanke will be filled with the sound of wonderful music as Oto Pestner is joined on stage by other big names from the world of music – whose identity must remain secret for the time being.
