Flores Musicae 2020
This year is we mark the 10th anniversary of The Flores Musicae Festival! Since its inception in 2011, under the name Days of Early Music, almost 50 concerts and 10 lectures and international master classes have taken place between Goriška, Kras, Brda, Friuli and Ljubljana, which have together created a new interesting audience. It has revived many architectural gems and has placed our region on the international map of events in Early music. It is one of the few world festivals that focuses almost exclusively on Medieval and Renaissance music. From the very beginning, it has offered original and rarely heard programmes that are far from the so-called mainstream. Every year it has brought top world specialists to Slovenia and has also given space to younger and already accomplished Slovenian musicians. It has lent particular emphasis to music linked to the Slovenian territory, and also co-produced a new music programme of the Renaissance composer and lutenist Giacomo Gorzanis. It was released in 2018 by Arcana (Outhere Music).
In order to make the 10th anniversary live up to the occasion, three concerts will take place featuring top international performers. Musica cubicularis led by early music Slovenian specialist Domen Marinčič will open the festival with works by Isaac Posch, a composer who lived and worked in Ljubljana right at the time of the construction of the marvellous Vila Vipolže hosting the event. The ensemble Tasto Solo is coming back with a new superb and subtle programme that revolves around the singer Anna Inglese which will take place at the church of the Kostanjevica Franciscan Monastery overlooking Nova Gorica. Dialogos, the ensemble under the artistic direction of the extraordinary Croatian singer and musicologist Katarina Livljanić, will be the last to perform at the festival. She has created a unique programme: a multimedia performance where medieval languages and musical repertoires meet modern scenography and videos forming an incredible acoustic Babylon. For the concert in Gorizia you must send a reservation via e-mail email@example.com.

The concerts of medieval and Renaissance music in dialogue with the pearls of the cultural heritage in the Goriška region, are a unique and special musical experience.
