In 2019 the members of Trio Tempestoso were proclaimed the winners of the Boris Pergamenschikow Prize for the performance of contemporary chamber music. The competition for this prize, one of the biggest and most prestigious in contemporary music, is held in Berlin every three years under the patronage of Tatjana Pergamenschikow and Sir András Schiff. The jury commended the trio for their “high-level instrumental interpretation” and noted that “through their exciting performance, the three musicians combine musical tradition with the spirit of the present and indicate the direction of the future.” The trio formed in 2017 at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz (Austria), where its members studied with renowned teachers such as Gerald Pachinger, Julian Arp and Martin Rainer. The young trio musicians have recently recorded for Austrian radio station Radio Österreich 1 and for Radio Slovenia. They have performed throughout Europe, with concerts in Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic and Slovenia. Their repertoire includes both original compositions and carefully chosen arrangements in which the unusual trio line-up (clarinet, cello, accordion) is able to express itself with a sound that at times is almost orchestral.

The Affettuoso Piano Trio formed in October 2019. Although the members have only been playing together for a short time, they won a second prize and a gold plaque in the oldest age category for string chamber ensembles at this year’s national TEMSIG (Young Musicians of Slovenia) competition. The trio participates actively in a range of events and concerts and recently performed at an evening of chamber works by Ludwig van Beethoven held to mark the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth. The trio consists of three ambitious young musicians. Cellist Peter Kaiser completed his master’s degree at the Ljubljana Academy of Music. He has won numerous prizes at national and international competitions both as a soloist and as a member of various chamber ensembles. Violinist Zala Eva Kocijančič is a second-year undergraduate student at the Ljubljana Academy of Music in the class of Vasilij Meljnikov. Last year she won two first prizes at international competitions (Zagreb, Paris). Pianist Lara Oprešnik is currently studying with Jasminka Stančul at the Ljubljana Academy of Music and with Milana Chernyavska at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz. In 2018 she won a Student Prešeren Prize for her performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra. She has won prizes at numerous international competitions. This year she won the scholarship competition organised by the Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe and the national TEMSIG (Young Musicians of Slovenia) competition.
