A warm welcome to you from our young virtuosi!

When the Summer Festival ends, the Young Virtuosi begin. And when they end, a new Festival begins. Over the past twenty five years the Ljubljana Festival presents to its audience the music cycle, dedicated to the creativity of the young musicians, who have however already gained some experience on both national and international music stages as well as achieved some enviable results at various important music competitions.

It is these budding musical prodigies who will take centre stage in the Knights’ Hall of the Križanke complex as part of the Young Virtuosi cycle. The synergies from the musical talent and enthusiasm of our concert performers, as well as their youthful commitment to the art of music, will reverberate throughout the Hall during the 13 events scheduled from October to April. Under the artistic direction of Darko Brlek, the international concert cycle is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Since its very inception, the event has been a showcase for young hopefuls who have gone on to experience success in various competitions. Many of them inspire awe not only because they are so accomplished, but also because they show incredible musical maturity despite being very young. Featuring pianists as young as 13 and 14, who will perform at the opening concert, and student chamber groups appearing at the closing evening event, the 25th season promises to resonate with vibrant chamber and solo musical treasures. You are cordially invited to come and listen to talented musicians from here in Slovenia, as well as countries further afield, such as Montenegro, Georgia, Macedonia, Serbia, Spain, Ukraine, Croatia, Poland and Portugal.

All the concerts are free of charge.
