Ljubljana International Orchestra

Ljubljana International Orchestra – our love, our inspiration, our orchestra, the unique mixture of greatest talents, cultural diversity and artistic perspective.

Ljubljana International Orchestra is gaining ground among young musicians and the best professional artists ever since it has successfully performed in Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Great Britain and Spain. The orchestra is composed of great young musicians who, through playing in the symphony orchestra, gain invaluable experience and cooperate with renowned professors, conductors and soloists. Musicians from more than thirty-five different countries, with different cultural and social backgrounds, strive to achieve the highest performance goals. The repertoire of the orchestra includes both symphonic works of Viennese classics and romance, as well as modern works of the 20th and 21st centuries. Sincere enthusiasm, youthful energy, and unstoppable courage are the basis for tackling the great symphonic masterpieces, which are mastered by the musicians in several working phases.

The orchestra has worked with soloists such as violist Wolfram Christ, trombonist Branimir Slokar, trumpeter Reinhold Friedrich, cellist Konstantin Pfiz, violinist Gregory Ahss and violist Gilad Karni. The concertmasters of the orchestra are Gregory Ahss (concertmaster of Camerata Salzburg and Luzern Festival Orchestra), Janez Podlesek (concertmaster of Slovene Philharmonic orchestra) and Yuri Kalnits (soloist). Permanent members of the orchestra are also Konstantin Pfiz (cello), Knut-Erik Sundquist (double bass), Jože Kotar (clarinet), Igor Ahss (bassoon), Zora Slokar (french horn), Mihael Šuler (trombone) and Raymond Curfs (timpani). The Ljubljana International Orchestra is the cultural ambassador of the City of Ljubljana. It represents the Slovene capital and portraits Ljubljana as a cosmopolitan city, city of youth, city of creativity and opportunities. The principal conductor of the orchestra is Živa Ploj Peršuh.
