The Georgian Chamber Orchestra Ingolstadt was founded in Tbilisi (Georgia) in 1964. Its move to Ingolstadt (Germany) in early 1990 opened a new chapter in its story. Despite the move to a different cultural and geographical environment, it maintains its Eastern European identity, at the same time acting as an important cultural ambassador for the city of Ingolstadt.
For its Ljubljana concert at the home of the Slovenian Philharmonic, the orchestra will be conducted by the Armenian conductor Ruben Gazarian, who since 2015 has also been its artistic director.
One of the most sought after Italian pianists of his generation and Deutsche Grammophon recording artist, Giuseppe Albanese and principal trumpet in the main orchestra and groups of the Spanish musical scene, Vicente Campos, will perform as soloists, as well as Fabrizio Meloni, who is, since 1984, the first solo clarinet chair of the Orchestra and the Philharmonic of the Teatro alla Scala in Milan.
