Vortices is the musical project of composer Pavel Mihelčič, whose oeuvre covers orchestral, theatrical, vocal-instrumental, choral and chamber music and works for soloists. He is a regular guest at Ljubljana Festival, where he has appeared as composer and performer in a range of projects and concert evenings. Vortices follows the journey of a group of instruments, while at its core is the range of the flute, one of the oldest wind instruments. The eight original pieces are written for various combinations of harp and flute (played by soloists Urška Križnik Zupan and Matej Zupan) with flute orchestra, and are interwoven with spoken poetic interludes. The artistic direction of the project is entrusted to the artistic director of the Opera and Ballet of the Slovene National Theatre Maribor, Simon Krečič, while the evening will be linked together by the actress Nataša Barbara Gračner, a permanent member of the Slovene National Theatre Ljubljana’s Drama company, reading texts by Mihelčič.
