Blue 6 1. & 2. march 2018 at 7,30 PM Gallus Hall, Cankarjev Dom Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra Marcelo Lehninger, conductor Andrew von Oeyen, piano Leonard Bernstein: Divertimento for Orchestra Leonard Bernstein: West Side Story, symphonic dances Leonard Bernstein: Symphony No. 2, The Age of Anxiety, for orchestra and solo piano In 2018, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of American pianist, conductor, composer and teacher Leonard Bernstein, who was undoubtedly one of the greatest musical personalities of the previous century. The Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra will therefore devote the present concert entirely to Bernstein’s extensive opus. In addition to one of his most famous works, the programme also includes two lesser-known but equally interesting and charming compositions – Symphony No. 2, known under the title The Age of Anxiety, and the Divertimento. The latter was created in 1980 on a commission from the Boston Symphony Orchestra to mark their 100th anniversary. The same orchestral contributed another very important work to world orchestral music – the Concerto for Orchestra by Béla Bartók, which they commissioned in 1943. ticket sale

Members of the Slovenian Philharmonic will also explore this rich treasure trove of a cappella and vocal-instrumental music in a concert that leads listeners through more than a century of the creativity of German and Austrian Classical and Romantic composers, from Haydn’s songs with piano accompaniment, through Mendelssohn’s and Schumann’s a cappella choral works, to Brahms’s setting of Romantic poetry in the rhythm of the waltz with instrumental accompaniment. On this occasion, the interpretations will be prepared by German tenor and conductor Holger Speck, founder and artistic director of the Rastatt Vocal Ensemble and the Baroque ensemble Les Favorites.

The Slovene Philharmonic in China
The Slovene Philharmonic goes to China again The Slovene Philharmonic Orchestra's quality exceeds the national, cultural and political borders of Slovenia. We can conclude that from many international projects – visits by foreign soloists and conductors, and the Orchestra's tours abroad. One of the tours we are most proud of was the one with the soprano Anna Netrebko and the conductor Emmanuel Villaume in 2012, when we performed Tchaikovsky's opera Iolanta all over Europe. We are also proud of our cooperation with the famouc Chinese conductor and composer Tan Dun, whith whom we performed two of our our regular concerts and a concert at the Ljubljana Festival 2015. Thanks to that cooperatio we were invited to the Chinese city of Nanjing, where we performed under the British conductor James Judd. We played the works of the honorary members of our society – Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms. This year's invitation followed last year's success. The Slovene Philharmonic Orchestra performed with James Judd at the National Center of Performing Arts in Beijing. They had two very successful concerts (on the 16th and 17th of december 2017) - a great success for the Slovene Philharmonic and an exquisite experience for all our musicians.

19th Slowind Festival 2017 - Encyclopaedia of Music
Slovenian Philharmonic Marjan Kozina Hall . . Artistic Director: Brice Pauset . . In the past, the Slowind Festival has drawn some excellent and innovative composers and ensembles to Ljubljana, among whom a particularly strong impression was created by French composer Brice Pauset, who came to our festival with the Geneva ensemble Contrechamps. After even a brief conversation with him it was clear that together we could put together a very special festival programme, so we quickly decided to collaborate. . Brice Pauset is not only a well-established contemporary composer, but also an outstanding connoisseur and interpreter of early music for the harpsichord. For our festival, he has therefore assembled a rich programme in which contemporary music is intertwined with early music, in some cases very early music. Perotin and Stockhausen, Muffat and Lachenmann, Gallus and Urška Pompe, Froberger and Elliott Carter, Schumann and Georg Friedrich Haas, to mention just a few of the unusual historical juxtapositions that will come to light at the 19th Slowind Festival 2017. . Our guests this time include: the early music ensemble Académie des Secrets, Ensemble Contrechamps with conductor Michael Wendeberg, the APZ Tone Tomšič Choir with conductor Jerica Gregorc Bukovec, the Dissonance String Quartet, the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Michael Wendeberg, as well as numerous soloists. . . We will have an opportunity hear three new works that will be contributed to the festival by Larisa Vrhunc, Uroš Rojko and Brice Pauset. . . .
