Ivo Pogorelich, piano - sold out

Programme: Frédéric Chopin 

Polonaise-Fantaisie in A flat Major, Op. 61

Legendary pianist Ivo Pogorelich has marked the classical music scene of our time. His unique musical talent and innovative approach have placed him among the most original music minds of today. Pogorelich’s adventurous spirit, valued for the lucidity in his discovery of new capacities of musical expression, is cloaked in pianism of the highest aesthetic value. His evocative interpretations have broadened the horizons and understanding of piano literature by setting new standards of excellence in pianistic interpretation. Thanks to his uncompromising artistic criteria, Pogorelich has, in over four decades of playing, accomplished authentic artistic triumphs, appreciated by both audiences and critics alike, while his concerts all over the world have gained the status of eagerly-awaited cult events. Pogorelich entered the world of elite pianism as a participant in the 10th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw, where, for reasons which have never been fully explained, he was eliminated before the final round. Certain members of the jury left the competition in protest, and pianist Martha Argerich explained her decision by declaring Pogorelich a genius. This event, like no other before in the history of music competitions, echoed around the music world. On the wave of the enormous interest he attracted with his unorthodox interpretations, astounding technique and innovative approach to interpreting music, Pogorelich gained recognition as a pianist of exceptional capacities and, above all, contemporary spirit. 
Cultivating the spirit of the European cultural tradition, maestro Pogorelich continues to perform major solo and concert piano works on the stages of Europe, North and South America and the Far East. His impressive repertoire, to which new pieces are constantly being added, has over the past few years placed focus on the voluminous piano cycles by Schumann, Brahms, Debussy, Ravel, Rachmaninov and Stravinsky, as well as those of Chopin.
The 2021/2022 concert season includes performances on the stages of Europe and the North America, with a programme entirely devoted to the music of Frédéric Chopin.

Alexander Gadjiev, piano

Recital on the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Poland and Slovenia

Programme: Frédéric Chopin 

Musical exposure and Central European culture: Alexander Gadjiev owes the first to his family, with both parents being piano teachers and musicians, and the second to Gorizia – his city of origin – a natural crossroads of peoples, cultures and languages. These factors have both had a determining influence on his natural ability to absorb, process and rework, to his own taste, different musical styles and languages. Tutored by his father, a well-known Russian teacher, Alexander played for the first time with an orchestra at the age of nine, and held his first solo recital aged ten. He was awarded his diploma at the age of seventeen, with the highest marks and honours. This allowed him to participate in the Premio Venezia – a competition reserved for Italy’s finest young talents – and to win the 30th edition of the award. 

Over the recent years, Gadjiev has won several major piano competitions: the Ninth Hamamatsu International Piano Competition in 2015 and the Monte-Carlo World Piano Masters Competition in 2018. In summer 2021, he was awarded first prize and several other distinctions at the Sydney International Piano Competition. That same year Gadjiev shot to worldwide fame by winning second prize and the Krystian Zimerman Prize for best performance of a sonata at the 18th Chopin Piano Competition. 

The Sydney competition opened the door for him to the Southern Hemisphere's most prestigious venues – his 2022 engagements include a grand tour of Australia and the Far East, as well as an extensive tour of Poland.

Hamid Drake's Turiya: Honoring Alice Coltrane

63rd Jazz Festival Ljubljana

Ndoho Ange: dance, spoken words; Thomas de Pourquery, tenor sax, vocals; Jan Bang: electronics; Jamie Saft, piano, keyboard, Fender Rhodes; Pasquale Mirra, vibraphone, percussion; Joshua Abrams, double bass, guembri, Hamid Drake, drums, percussion, vocals

One of the greatest drummers of recent decades makes a grand return to the Jazz Festival Ljubljana. The programme it brings, and its dazzling personnel couldn’t have been more inspiring.

Alice Coltrane was one of the most gifted and beloved artists of our current times. She had many admirable qualities. She was a brilliant pianist and organist. Harpist, composer, author of several books and of course the wife of John Coltrane. Even prior to meeting John, Alice had already embarked upon an ever-expanding musical career with many of the great musicians from Detroit, Michigan. The town she was from.

The legacy that Alice and John Coltrane created together was truly monumental. After the passing of John Coltrane, Alice pursued her own career, emphasizing the spiritual nature of music, “spiritual jazz”, and the practices of devotion and meditation. Then she reached a point in her life that called for a semi-retirement from concerts and tours.

At this point, she abandoned her secular life and began to focus more on the growing spiritual community of devotees and seekers that was forming around her. She very seriously took on the role of spiritual guide to this faith community. She adopted the name Swamini Turiya Aparna Sangitananda. This was also a time in her life of great penance and spiritual unveiling.

She was an African American artist, and spiritual master gifted with an extraordinary ability and capacity to bring upliftment, renewal and regeneration to everyone who crossed her path and listened to her music. She was a guiding light for many older and younger musicians. Her impact upon the many dimensions of the music scene is still being felt and will continue for many years to come.   


 

I met Alice Coltrane at a Ravinia Festival concert, outside Chicago, when I was 16. We exchanged addresses and wrote to each other afterwards. Her creativity impacted a host of musicians and listeners. For myself it was and still is very powerful. She gifted me with a spiritual and aesthetic openness that I continually cherish. This project is my way of honoring the great being that enabled a teenager to continue on the path of discovery, wonderment and finding one's own voice. Hamid Drake

Emperor

Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra; conductor: Simon Krečič; soloist: Dubravka Tomšič Srebotnjak, piano

Programme:
Alojz Srebotnjak, Naturae vox – Call of Nature
Ludwig van Beethoven, Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58
Ludwig van Beethoven, Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, Pp. 73, “Emperor”

The rescheduled concluding concert of the 2019/20 Orange Season marking the 80th anniversary of the first lady of Slovenian pianism, Dubravka Tomšič Srebotnjak. Under the baton of Simon Krečič, the pianist and the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra will perform two piano concertos by Ludwig van Beethoven. The Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat Major, which, by virtue of its fiery virtuosity and symphonic expansiveness, soon earned the sobriquet "Emperor", constitutes the pinnacle of Beethoven’s five piano concertos. 

The introductory piece, Naturae vox – Call of Nature, was composed by one of the most prominent Slovenian artists, Alojz Srebotnjak, the late life companion of Dubravka Tomšič Srebotnjak. He studied composition under Lucijan Marija Škerjanc and pursued further studies abroad. Attracting attention with his remarkable flair for vocals and expressiveness early on, the composer gained artistic maturity seeking ways to "express his inner self".

Anouar Brahem Quartet

63rd Jazz Festival Ljubljana

Anouar Brahem, oud; Klaus Gesing, bass clarinet, soprano saxophone; Björn Meyer, bass; Khaled Yassine, percussions


We are excited to announce one of the highlights of this year's Jazz Festival Ljubljana. One of the greatest masters of the Arab lute and an accomplished jazz composer, Anouar Brahem, will play his first concert in Slovenia.

For almost forty years and with a rich discography now covering no less than eleven albums on the ECM label, Anouar Brahem has been constantly placing the age-old tradition of Arab music, and the superb finesse of its emblem, the oud, into different contexts, where he not only contrasts it with modern jazz but also with the sophisticated harmonies of the erudite compositional tradition of the West and the refined forms of the rich cultural heritage of the Orient.

Today, he can draw on the experience he has gathered over the years in his concerts with other musicians. With the Quartet formed in 2009 for the album The Astounding Eyes of Rita he is now committing to a new project, thereby returning to his former terrain for the first time ever through a repertoire combining several of the group’s usual themes, together with some taken from older albums (Madar, Thimar, Astrakan Café, Le Voyage de Sahar…)  or more recent ones such as Blue Maqams. 

As leader of this group, livelier and more creative than ever after ten years of close understanding between himself and his musicians, Anouar Brahem is now casting a fresh look at his musical universe and opening up some original horizons for it.
