Bohinj Summer Music Festival: ENSEMBLE.SI
ENSEMBLE.SI consists of Slovenian musicians living abroad who, after their education and career beginnings in Slovenia, went to further their education abroad. After or during their studies, successful auditions and audition periods have secured them prestigious positions in prestigious orchestras, opera houses and universities across Europe. Thus, the musicians are members of the orchestras of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics, the Bavarian State Opera, the orchestras of the Frankfurt and Bavarian Radio, the Hof Symphony Orchestra, the Split Academy of Music, the Barenboim-Said Academy,…
The desire to play chamber music together has been a recurring topic of discussion at the meetings, and so in 2018 the first concert in Berlin took place. After a really successful first concert, the desire to meet and perform together only grew stronger and was followed by concerts at the Ljubljana Festival, Imago Sloveniae, the Music Summer in Bohinj, Piran Music Evenings, Klassik in Burghof in Klagenfurt, the National House in Maribor, Nova Gorica and Celje, as well as the Silver Season Ticket of the Cankarjev dom.
The ensemble performs in various configurations, from duos to decets, and performs pieces from the classical, iron repertoire to modern compositions written especially for ENSEMBLE.SI.
