Formed on the initiative of hornist Boštjan Lipovšek, the project by prominent Slovenian and international artists grew out of the natural synergy of their creative energies. Sharing their intense devotion to music, the musicians’ commitment reflects deep-centred musicality. The violinists are Alexander Janiczek, an artist of great intellectual and musical breadth, and Tanja Sonc, a highly sought-after musician who has already attained international distinction. Lebanese-born viola player Ribal Molaeb is an accomplished young musician. Finnish-born Timo Veikko Valve is Principal Cello of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and one of the most versatile musicians of his generation performing as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader on both modern and period instruments. Internationally recognised Slovenian double bass player Iztok Hrastnik has been member of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra for a number of years. Maximiliano Martín is one of the most compelling and charismatic clarinet players of recent years, while Žarko Perišić has made a name for himself as the Principal Bassoon of the Croatian Radiotelevision Symphony Orchestra.
