Performing Slovenian compositions and encouraging the creation of new works for chamber string ensembles is central to the mission of the Slovenian Philharmonic String Chamber Orchestra. During the twenty-five years of its operation, the ensemble has performed most of the repertoire of Slovenian composers and commissioned more than fifty new compositions from domestic and foreign composers. The works presented on the present CD, entitled “Divertimenti”, were created on commissions from the ensemble for the concert cycle Harmony of the Spheres, which we have been organising for eighteen years in cooperation with the National Gallery in Ljubljana. The cycle Harmony of the Spheres XV, within which the present compositions were performed, was subtitled “Divertimenti”, as its purpose was to try to entertain, or “divert”, listeners and performers with contemporary musical works alongside classical pieces of this genre. This gave rise to the compositions Overhead by Vito Žuraj, who imaginatively and humorously gives a sonic portrayal of chasing away an annoying mosquito, Kontra Bas by Tomaž Bajželj, who inventively exploits various expressive techniques of the solo contrabass, Capriccio by Nina Šenk, who adds a touch of humour to the composition with the virtuosity of the solo cello and the rhythm of a waltz, and Divertilamento by Matej Bonin, who explores the contrast between a happy and mournful emotional mood as the driving force of the composition. The creation of the compositions was entirely financially supported by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, to which we would like to extend our sincere gratitude.
