Since 2003, the Megaron Chamber Choir had brought together pupils and former pupils of the Diocesan Classical Gymnasium in Ljubljana. The choir was established on the initiative of composer and conductor Damijan Močnik, who has also led the ensemble since its inception. In the ten years of its operation, Megaron has gained a reputation both in Slovenia and abroad, where it has appeared at numerous concerts in Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Poland, Canada and the United States. On this occasion, they will be joined by the Slovenian Philharmonic Choir and conducted by Damijan Močnik, who, in addition to his own works, will present Krek’s arrangements of Prekmurje folk songs and an early work by Ligeti, created during his studies in Budapest, as well as compositions by Reynaldo Hahn, a French romantic composer who worked in Venezuela, and contemporary American composer William Hawley, who often draws inspiration from the music of past eras. A highlight of the programme will be a performance of the first movement of Schnittke’s Choir Concerto, one of the greatest choral masterpieces of the twentieth century.
