Ensemble Dissonance

In the course of his lifetime Antonio Vivaldi composed more than 500 concertos for various solo instruments and chamber ensembles. The majority of his concertos are based on the interplay between soloists and string orchestra, thematic focus and a circular journey through the tonal space. The recurring theme or ritornello  is usually simple and easily recognisable and the intervening episodes are clearly distinguishable. The essential atmosphere of the fast movements is joyous and cheerful, while the slow movements reveal a light lyricism. Vivaldi’s contribution to violin technique and orchestration was considerable, while at the same time he is considered a pioneer of orchestral programme music. A selection of some of his most recognisable concertos will be performed by the Austrian violinist Benjamin Ziervogel and the Slovene flautist Boris Bizjak, two musicians who are internationally acclaimed both as members of chamber ensembles and as soloists. They will be joined onstage by members of Ensemble Dissonance, a chamber ensemble that, under the leadership of cellist Klemen Hvala, is constantly achieving new heights of performance with thoughtfully designed artistic events and collaborations with outstanding musicians from both Slovenia and abroad.
