 Choral Festival 2015

Choral Festival 2015

 

Komorni Zbor Hugo Wolf (Slovenia)

Komorni Zbor Hugo Wolf (Slovenia) was founded in 2010, the 150th Anniversary of the birth of composer Hugo Wolf (1860-1903) as part of the Cultural Society of German-Speaking Women (Mostovi-Brücken). Keeping in spirit with the rich tradition of choral singing in Maribor, the choir incorporates a very broad range of styles, both old and contemporary, with no limits of genre or origin.
The choir consists mostly of students of the choir’s artistic director, Aleš Marčič, a Master of Musical Arts. In 2011 the choir was awarded the golden diploma in category “Musica sacra” at “In… Canto sul Garda”in Italy. In 2014 they were invited to perform at Festival Maribor as part of the project “Stolen” with artistic director Richard Tognetti, director of the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

The Foerster Female Chamber Choir (Czech Republic)

The Foerster Female Chamber Choir (Czech Republic) was founded in Prague in 1975 and quickly came to be regarded as one of the Czech Republic’s leading choirs. Over the last few decades the choir has amassed a plethora of prizes, winning honours at festivals in Arezzo, Cork, Debrecen, Jihlava, and Prague, along with claiming outright victories at competitions in Klaipeda (2003), Vienna (2006), Venice (2008), and Rimini (2012). The choir pays special attention to contemporary music and has given many Czech composers their premier performance,though its repertoire is wide, ranging from Renaissance polyphony to music of the 20th century.
Current director Jaroslav Brych studied conducting at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague under Václav Neumann and now works as a pedagogue there, the Faculty of Pedagogics at Charles University, and the Conservatoire of Pardubice.
