EVENTS - SEP 2012
5. 9. 2012
Maribor Festival under artistic leadership of Richard Tognetti is a breeze of fresh air on Slovenian and international festival scene.
One of the most prestigious musical events in Slovenia will enrich Maribor in the first half of September. The artistic director Richard Tognetti, a violinist and chamber musician of Australian origin, presents musical pieces of the highest rank, surpassing all clichés. The festival is proud of its novelties, premieres of classical music and its multi–media projects; however, it also transcends the borders of classical music with its primal ethnic and jazz music. Among those participating are a number of virtuoso figures performing as soloists and members of the Festival Orchestra, who will host a unique musical workshop with the members of the Slovene Philharmonic Orchestra. The Maribor Festival also attracts young musicians, providing them with ideal opportunities for promotion. The concerts will take place in Mariborand its partner cities. One of the festival’s best features is that it finds historical buildings suitable for hosting events, which means that the festival also takes care of the revitalization of the town’s cultural heritage.
Time of event: 5. - 15. 9. 2012
