Percussion instruments and their rhythms have accompanied global travelers since time immemorial, carrying stories and testifying to the richness of traditions. For their 20th anniversary, the Slovenian Percussion Project SToP has prepared a unique program that connects the timeless sound of a symphony orchestra with the colourful timbres of percussion instruments. This is by no means a coincidence, since symphony orchestra programs increasingly feature percussion music.
The program presents excerpts of popular symphonic works by Mozart, Mascagni, Bernstein, Ginastera and others. The music of these giants will be accompanied by excellent compositions from Slovenian composers. A little spice is added to the program with pieces performed by the eight percussionists of the Slovenian Percussion Project themselves, thus connecting with the orchestral program.
This program was first presented in June 2019 with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Mojca Lavrenčič at a large open-air concert on Kongresni trg (Congress Square) in Ljubljana.
