Early music festival

The most beautiful early music concerts, performed at Slovenia’s cultural heritage sites are presenting first-class artists from all around the world. Only the most distinguished artists, who perform an exquisite programme of the highest quality, are invited to be part of our concerts. We uncover both the European and the world’s musical legacy through different elements of our programme, while devoting special attention to the performance of the music which was created on Slovenian grounds. Each year the programme of concerts is comprised of the musical heritage from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century. Music at the concerts is performed by authentic instruments and in an authentic way. We keep live art in the foreground, as is evident from our name Seviqc: »SEmper VIva Quam Creata« or »always alive as created«.
The Ensemble Purpur was founded in 2012 by several members of the Orchestra Purpur to spread its European principle beyond their orchestral work and, of course, to enjoy playing together on a very high level. The 9-headed, artistically free ensemble, consisting of European young and highly talented musicians put its focus on chamber music of Franz Joseph Haydn. At tonight’s concert two excelent soloists are joining them: Christos Kechris and Vassia Zacharopoulou.
