Gorišek / Lazar

solo / solo / duo

Bojan Gorišek, Milko Lazar, piano

The Solo / Duo / Solo subseries will conclude in a slightly different vein, with the piano duo Gorišek / Lazar, two of Slovenia’s most prominent contemporary piano artists, and a select programme.
It has been ages since the two gave a double piano concert at CD’s Small Gallery. On this occasion, however, in addition to playing together, they will each perform a solo programme. And what have they been up to lately? Working on a heap of brilliant projects which have won prestigious awards, performing at home and abroad, and releasing albums so listenable that just put them on repeat. And if you haven't had a chance to hear them, now is the time to come and listen to them live, especially because they will play first-class pianos in the best acoustic environment.

This will be the first Tuesday Clubbing event for a live audience since October 2020. Let's celebrate the occasion together.

Tigran Hamasyan Trio

Imbued with rock and Armenian tradition, the album’s upbeat, eruptive music is marked by polyrhythms and brisk tempo in alternation with quiet, poetic, ethereal passages, like sonic and cinematic waves in constant flux

Tigran Hamasyan, piano; Evan Marien, bass; Arthur Hnatek, drums

Some of you must still remember this young Armenian pianist’s first appearance within the context of the Cankarjevi torki Series. That was in 2012, when he was only 25. We knew even then that his rise to prominence would be both swift and global.

Born in Gyumri, Armenia, Tigran grew up in a household that was full of music—his father was more of a rock fan and his uncle a huge jazz buff. Along the way, Tigran discovered the wide variety of Armenian music, including work songs, epic folk songs and war dances that are very different from region to region. While studying classical music in Armenia, Tigran continued to grow on his own as a jazz pianist. When he was 16, his parents moved to Los Angeles to give their two children (Tigran’s sister is a painter and sculptor) better artistic opportunities.

He is one of the most remarkable and distinctive jazz-meets-rock pianists of his generation. Tigran’s fresh sound is marked by an exploration of time signatures beyond 4/4 into 5/4 and 9/8, charged dynamics, the shifting between acoustic and electric modes of expression, all undergirded by an affinity to the grind of heavy metal. Tigran is an imaginative artist who freely and courageously pursues his own vision, not only built on tradition but also infused with his own personality and passion.

Hamasyan’s latest album, The Call Within, was released last year on the notable American Nonesuch Records. 

In cooperation with International Druga godba Festival 

The opening of the summer concert and festival season could not have been more exciting or inspiring.

Fabula in Theory: Envisaging a Community of the Future?

This year’s theoretical centre of the festival will focus on two interconnected, but topically diametrically opposed events. The section Envisaging a Community of the Future? will discuss the challenges of future communities and building new social formations of a utopian or dystopian future and will feature a lecture by one of the most prominent contemporary Italian philosophers, Umberto Galimberti. Matejka Grgič will moderate the lecture in which he will explore possible current and future spaces that seem to be sliding back into elapsed ideas, into an area of political and social control, while baring features of a dystopian future.

Umberto Galimberti (1942) is a full professor at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, where he has been teaching since 1976. He studied philosophy, anthropology, and psychology first in Italy, then in Germany. He has authored a number of scientific and popular science books, translations, and technical publications for various Italian media. His work has been translated into several languages; the books The Disturbing Guest. Nihilism and Young People and The Myths of Our Time have been translated into Slovenian. Umberto Galimberti is one of the most prominent representatives of the school of philosophy that developed in the late 20th century so unhomogenously that it does not actually bear a common label. It is a train of thought closely relating to psychology and partly to anthropology and religiology. This philosophy is characteristic of the analytical psychology of C. G. Jung, antique philosophy (especially Plato), and fields of anthropology and religiology dealing with archaic religions and myths. Umberto Galimberti’s philosophy is based on the assumption that the philosopher does not live in a fortress of knowledge, rationality, and logic, but rather in the midst of a life of a community, that they are a person among people and their knowledge, rationality, and logic do not disable, but rather allow them to be confronted with the reality of their life. When contemplating the challenges of a modern society, Galimberti uses the appropriate methods of analysis and synthesis, but does not reject antique or even archaic forms of wisdom. His human is a whole, not just a cluster of organs or a contraposition of body and spirit getting a glimpse into new perspectives. Galimberti uses his works to discuss the phenomena in modern society that have lost all dimensions of the archaic narrative and have become self-explanative, dogmatic – the axioms of the 21st century.

Moderator: Matejka Grgič.
Simultaneous translation will be provided.

The issue of the Razpotja magazine that was created in collaboration with the Fabula Festival and Cankarjev dom for this year’s festival focus will also be available at the festival event.

The event has been postponed to September due to the pandemic and current measures against the spread of COVID-19, which do not allow live events with a larger audience presence.

Brilliant, mature, cultivated and sensitive is how the press describes the style of Beatrice Rana (1993), one of the brightest stars in the galaxy of great pianists. Winner of the prestigious Montreal International Competition (2011), “2017 Young Artist of the Year” (Gramophone), “Best Female Artist 2018” (Classic BRIT), and an exclusive recording artist for Warner Classic, the natural-born soloist is also founder of the Classiche Forme (2017), a festival dedicated to presenting chamber music in a dynamic, young, and attractive way.
The pianist’s stylistically varied recitals are a reflection of her technical superiority, musical intelligence and refreshing professionalism. The evening’s programme reveals her special approach: Beatrice feels the links between the works as much instinctively as intellectually.

“Her touch is weighty: the notes come through with a full and rounded timbre. But with the weightiness of touch comes almost uncanny accuracy, so the melody in a passage of notes is clear as well as rich: there’s no question of the waters being muddied.” Bachtrack

“This may be the most subtle playing you ever heard but there are moments when it is the most powerfully commanding. The pianist is not just the gentlest nymph you ever encountered; she is also the most forceful goddess.” Jack Buckley

Improvisation – Dance Suite

Composer, organist and improviser Thierry Escaich – “one of the most fascinating chameleons of his generation” (Diapason) – is able to combine these three profiles in a unique manner, binding them inextricably together to reflect his rich inner world. An ambassador of the great French school of improvisation, Escaich is equally impressive as a brilliant performer keeping alive the time-honoured tradition of Paris organ school, or an inspired composer whose unique, highly personal style – informed by the French line of composition and imbued with references from contemporary music – covers a broad spectrum of forms and genres.
Presented under the evocative title Mirror Dances, the evening’s programme takes us on a thrilling musical journey. Pairing the elaborate grandeur of the Baroque style with contemporary pieces, it is interspersed with the organist’s own compositions and masterful improvisations.

 

There are vast torrents of notes – yet such is their energy and buoyancy that the listener is carried irresistibly in the flow. To counterbalance this apparently unstoppable force, Escaich concerns himself with structure and, in characteristically French fashion, also explores the colour and timbres of sound, with sometimes cataclysmic peaks.
The Guardian

In these works one can recognise the essential qualities of Escaich’s music; the originality of his harmonies, the richness of his orchestration and an unerring understanding of form. If Thierry Escaich has become the pre-eminent composer of his generation, it is through the value of his poetic ideas and the glorious atmosphere he creates, penetrated with lyrical impulses.
L’Express

 

 

 His concerto exploits the full sonic and colour ranges of the orchestra and organ in this thrilling three-movement work, the second rising to an awe-inspiring climax only topped by the shattering coda of the finale.
