The Musikabende Graz Concert Series, Festival Maribor’s long-time partner in musical collaborations and cultural exchange, shares our vision of connecting the audiences from both sides of Slovenian-Austrian border and enriching both cities with carefully selected concert programmes and musicians. This year’s Festival Maribor visit in Graz offers an evening of lied performed by Theresa Plut
and Nejc Lavrenčič
. The Canadian born soprano crossed the ocean following her love for music and singing. Today she is one of the most prominent Slovenian singers of her generation, a passionate advocate of Slovenian lied, and a sought-after interpret of classical lied. Lucijan Maria Škerjanc and Lojze Lebič are two renowned Slovenian composers, whose songs will be presented to the Austrian audiences together with songs by Wolf, whose mother also had Slovenian roots. Rounding up the programme are songs by Rachmaninoff, Strauss, Lebetkin, Barber and Copland.
