15th Festival Slowind 2013: Vinko Globokar - Vendre le vent
Glasbeno drustvo Slowind, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Marking the many years of successful collaboration between Ensemble Slowind and Vinko Globokar October 2013 will see the holding of the Slowind Festival that will be celebrated very much with a focus on Globokar’s 80th birthday. In 2013 the 15th Festival Slowind will celebrate the anniversary of this cosmopolitan to whom nationality in art never meant very much but who still looked to themes, problems and not least cultural elements of the Slovenian people in the narrow and wider regional context for the needs of his musical expression.
Apart from Ensemble Slowind and its affiliated members the festival also features Ensemble Aleph (France), Ensemble unitedberlin (Germany), Neues Ensemble Hannover (Germany) as well as the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation is supporting the festival in 2013 which will feature the performance of 12 of Globokar’s compositions never before staged in Slovenia. Also forming part of the program are works by composers involving Globokar’s intense collaboration as a composer and trombonist (René Leibowitz, Luciano Berio, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Maurizio Kagel) as well as new works by famous Slovenian composers of the younger generation.
