When Festival Maribor
sets out to present something for children, we must forget the predictability that usually accompanies classical music festivals. During events that are tailor-made for children, it is often the musicians themselves who draw inspiration from their interactions with young listeners who, with their infectious directness and enthusiasm for live music, sometimes exhaust the enthusiasm of the musicians who play for them – or more often even re-energize them. But every now and then, however, the musicians can surprise and indeed, in the spirit of Festival Maribor
– which aims to cross borders and connect people – come up with new ideas. It is in this spirit that a concert will be held for children and families by saxophonist Vasko Atanasovski
and his son, Ariel Vei Atanasovski
, a cellist. Father and son represent not only two generations of musicians, but also a fondness for quite diverse genres of music: improvised, ethno and jazz as well as classical. All this will weave together at this oneof- a-kind family event!
