Vladimir Mlinarić, born in Pula in 1981, started learning the piano at the age of seven. He studied in Ljubljana with Zdenka Novak and in Vienna with L. Brumberg. He also studied lied interpretation with Breda Zakotnik, who significantly influenced his artistic development. Critics have characterised him as a refined interpreter who combines academic precision and fantasy with ambition and love of music. His performances are described as precise and transparent, and his style as discreet and unobtrusive. Since 2002 he has taught piano at the Ljubljana Academy of Music. The concert programme includes wide spectrum of musical themes, raging from philosophically tragic to cheerfully amusing. He will perform works by W. A. Mozart, one of the dominant composers of the Classical period, and the humorous work Hanoniana, written in 1971 by Finnish composer Matti Rautio, which perfectly complements the character of this concert evening.
