*first performance

This quartet of four trombonists was founded in 1973 by the Slovene trombonist Branimir Slokar. Over the course of a successful concert career spanning several decades, the quartet has built an enviable repertoire that ranges from works of the early Baroque period to new pieces by contemporary composers. Branimir Slokar is joined in the quartet by György Gyivicsán, professor at the Academy F. Liszt in Budapest, Wassil Christov, solo trombonist in Berner Symphonieorchester and teacher at Musikkonservatorium Bern, and Edgar Manyak, solo trombonist in Rundfunk Sinfonieorchester Berlin and Professor at Musikhochschule Basel. Together, the four trombonists enthral audiences with their homogeneous sound, technical mastery and musicality. A multitude of concert invitations, rapturous reviews, an impressive discography and numerous radio and television recordings are proof of the boundless creative power of the quartet. For this concert, the quartet will be joined by Kristijan Kranjčan, a multi-award-winning percussionist, cellist, composer and director. A member of a famous Slovene musical family, he has collaborated on 25 CD recordings and performed concerts in more than 25 different countries. With this concert, the quartet will take us on a journey of discovery from the trombone’s beginnings in the Renaissance to the present day, with works that have raised the ensemble onto the pedestal of one the most interesting trombone quartets currently active.
