Cellist Bernardo Brizani is a well-known figure at the Ljubljana Festival. Admitted to the Ljubljana Academy of Music at the age of just fifteen owing to his remarkable musical talent, he completed six years of study at the Scuola di Musica in Fiesole in the same period. He has also studied at prestigious European academies with famous cello teachers such as Igor Škerjanc (Ljubljana), Natalia Gutman (Florence), Claudio Bohórquez (Stuttgart) in Xenia Janković (Detmold). Brizani, who this year is a member of the Orchestra Academy of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, has won prizes at numerous national and international competitions. As a soloist and chamber musician he has performed in many of the most important concert venues in Slovenia, and also in Minnesota (USA), Brussels, Semmering, Baden-Baden and at the Kosciuszko Foundation Auditorium in New York, as the first of the three winners of the Alexander & Buono Competitions in 2010. In 2012 he won a Student Prešeren Prize. The Slovenian Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra is an ensemble of fourteen string players from the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra. It was founded in 1993 by Boris Šinigoj, who was then director of the Slovenian Philharmonic, with the support of the Ministry of Culture. Over the course of more than 25 years of activity, the ensemble has played over 400 concerts at home and abroad and is a regular guest at Ljubljana’s summer festival.
Concert is part of the European cross-border project “tARTini”, which brings together institutions in Piran, Ljubljana, Trieste and Padua with the aim of stimulating cultural tourism and promoting cultural heritage.
