It’s all in the method!

As said in our first newsletter, being romantic is not easy. For all of you who struggle we have checked a WikiHow page with a step by step guide. Here are some of the recommended methods (yes, this is the expression they are using!).

Method one is called “be thoughtful” and suggests buying thoughtful gifts, taking your love on thoughtful dates and leaving thoughtful notes. Method two is called “be creative“. It includes writing "I love you" in unlikely places, declaring your love in an old-fashioned way, celebrating Valentine's Day on a random day and making a mixed CD with carefully (shouldn’t it be thoughtfully?) selected music.

Feeling overwhelmed?

We thought so, and that’s why Festival Maribor has a better method on offer! It is called visit our concerts, starting with the opening concert on September 3rd. Here’s our step by step guide:

I/ get her/him a ticket,
II / put it in an envelope with a thoughtful message (or just write “I love you on it”),
III/ get a glass of bubbly in the break
IV/ declare your love in an old-fashioned way (read: Get down on your knee!).

Surely your beloved will be hugely impressed by this both thoughtful and creative date (a celebration of Valentine’s day in September!) And best of it all: no tiresome (and tricky, possible fatal) business of choosing the right music for that CD. Our beautiful programme with music by Beethoven, Shostakovich and Haydn, and our world class musicians: violoncellist and conductor Nicolas Altstaedt and members of the Haydn Philharmonie will gladly do the work on your behalf. All you need to do is enjoy your newly achieved status of romantic super-hero!
