After distinguished studies in Ljubljana, Zagreb, Florence, Stuttgart and Detmold, the cellist Bernardo Brizani has forged a successful career as a soloist and chamber musician. He has made regular appearances at the Ljubljana Festival since 2019. This year, he will be performing with the Slovenia-based conductor Steven Loy, founder of the new music ensemble Neofonía, which has given Slovenian premieres of numerous important late 20th and early 21st century works under his direction. He will lead the String Chamber Orchestra of the Slovenian Philharmonic, which since its foundation in 1993 has played over 400 concerts at home and abroad, including several at the summer Ljubljana Festival. Together they will present a stylistically diverse repertoire, including the dynamic work of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, a master of the German Sturm und Drang style, followed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s famous classicist and Mozart-inspired variations, as well as one of his haunting and lyrical miniatures, then a composition by Juraj Marko Žerovnik, a young Croatian composer born in Rijeka, and finally one of the mainstays of the chamber music repertoire, the Der Tod und das Mädchen  by Franz Schubert, whose four movements are united by the motif of the danse macabre.
