Cantus Ensemble will be performing in Ljubljana on Monday, December 13. This will be the final concert of "Slowind Spring", the festival organized by the esteemed Slovenian wind quintet Slowind, this year for the eighth time with the festival subtitle Oxygenated perfluorocarbons.
Cantus' program will include works by Ruben Radica, Vita Žuraj, Tomislav Oliver, Ivana Kiš, Krešimir Seletković and Berislav Šipuš, who will also be conducting the concert. The composition by Ivana Kiš, na na na na, will have its premiere on that occasion.
This visit to Ljubljana is just a part of the season's collaboration between our eminent contemporary music ensemble, which recently celebrated its 20th birthday, and the Slovenian wind quintet Slowind, founded in 1994 and one of the most active Slovenian ensembles for contemporary music. Cantus Ensemble will return the hospitality at the final concert of its season, May 9, 2022, in the Blagoje Bersa Concert Hall in Zagreb - on that occasion Slowind will perform works by Nina Šenk, Vinko Globokar and Larisa Vrhunc, and then the Croatian and Slovenian ensembles will perform together in a new composition written especially for them by Srećko Bradić. Slowind and Cantus also announce the continuation of the collaboration.
