In a parallel realm, the curtains are coming down on the 7th Winter Festival, marking the end of an exciting chapter in the world of winter sports and festivities. As the snow settles and the echo of cheers fades, fans reflect on the thrills and extraordinary performances that have defined this annual celebration.

Brahms’s Variations on a Theme by Haydn,  conceived as an ode to Joseph Haydn, represent a turning point in the composer’s career as his first work for large orchestra without a soloist. The variations may therefore be understood as a preparation for a true symphonic exploit, his First Symphony,  which appeared three years later. Each variation brings its own unique character and musical colour, while maintaining the basic theme in the foreground. One of the most distinguished violinists in musical history, Henryk Wieniawski, received the commission to compose his Violin Concerto No. 1  from a member of the Russian nobility, which cemented his reputation as a composer and violin virtuoso. He composed the work while living in Russia. It features rich melodic lines, technically demanding interludes and fiery, passionate passages. Beethoven’s Third Symphony,  known as the “Eroica”,  was written during the period when the composer was grappling with the loss of his hearing. This distressing personal situation probably contributed to the intensity and depth of expression in the symphony, which revolutionised the development of symphonic music and influenced successive generations of composers.

The 7th Winter Festival will thus conclude with three works from the treasury of classical music, performed by the Slovene Youth Orchestra under conductor Živa Ploj Peršuh. A versatile conductor who is also the founder and artistic director of the orchestra, she has a wide symphonic and operatic repertoire and also enjoys tackling genre-spanning projects. Bridging the gap between formal education and the realities of professional playing, the Slovene Youth Orchestra gives young musicians a first-hand experience of all aspects of life as a professional musician. The soloist in Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto No. 1  will be Rok Zaletel Černoš, who this year became the first Slovene violinist to participate in the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Rok is a graduate of the Ljubljana Academy of Music, where he studied under Vasilij Meljnikov. He won numerous prizes while still a student, including a Student Prešeren Prize. As the holder of a City of Ljubljana scholarship, he is currently pursuing further studies at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna under Anton Sorokow.
