Michel Godard is an artist who builds bridges between Renaissance and jazz music. His medium is the tuba and its predecessor the serpent, an instrument that resembles a snake of twisted brass with an ivory mouthpiece that gives it a distinctly warm, fragile and human yet intense tone. Building bridges between musical periods, cultures, people and their traditions, especially those from the Balkan Peninsula, comes even more naturally to local saxophonist Vasko Atanasovski. When we unite these two musicians with the Slovenian Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra, an ensemble at home in the classical repertoire but one that never shies away from adventures with exceptional musicians of different backgrounds, and add in a programme featuring music by Godard and Atanasovski interwoven with music by the Slovenian Renaissance giant Jacobus Gallus, there is no doubt that we have a wonderful and unique opportunity to embark on a fascinating journey through time and space.
