Bojan Cvetrežnik from Maribor wrote history in the Court Tower. The first, today legendary, concert of the Terrafolk ensemble took place right there in 1999. Before that, Bojan had prepared an author’s evening for the additional program of the festival Musical September in 1996, and later accidentally broke his violin at the euphoric Terrafolk concert evening. After a decade of touring with Terrafolk, Bojan has been mainly involved in Godalkanje, working with young people for the last ten years. Now he is returning to the Court Tower with a young generation of musicians, Godalkanje Fiddle Gang, which has already achieved international recognition under his leadership.

This year’s concert of Godalkanje in the Court Tower is prepared by violin master Jean-Christoph Gairard and the Slovenian teenage band Godalkanje Fiddle Gang, led by Bojan Cvetrežnik and Barja Drnovšek.
They will take you to the heart of the music of the Northeast Balkans – melodies from the land of Count Dracula – Transylvania and its surroundings. Jean-Christoph Gairard will also perform on stage with the trio Trionica, formed by Nejc Škofic (keyboards) and Jošt Lampret (double bass), two of the most penetrating young jazz and classical musicians at the moment.

A complete musical surplus!

Who: 

Barja Drnovšek graduated at the Carinthian State Conservatorium with Prof Helfried Fister and obtained her master’s degree from the Academy of Music in Ljubljana with Prof Gorjan Košuta.

While pursuing her studies, she found folk music intriguing, which led her to attend various workshops and folk camps (Etno Histeria, Trad. Lockenhaus music workshop etc.). In addition to classical orchestras (SFK Symphony Orchestra, Wiener Jeunesse Orchester, Arseia String Orchestra, MLS, Junge Philharmonie Wien etc.), she has been increasingly engaged in a number of ensembles that play folk music (Symbolic Orchestra, Terrafolk, Ida&Other Bears, Grad gori!, a duet with Bojan Cvetrežnik, Svetlana Makarovič, Baraka etc.). Soon, however, this activity became a profession and she quit her job at a public school and became a freelance musician and a music teacher. She teaches violin and other instruments and holds workshops as part of the educational programmes of the ONE Music Society. In addition, Drnovšek takes part in theatre and puppet performances and works as a session musician recording music for films, cartoons and pop musicians.

What:

BALFOLK

Explore folk dances from those European countries where dancing is part of everyday life, where people do not wear traditional costumes and do not dance to “perform” but rather out of pure joy – everyone, young and old. You will make a journey to France, Italy and Belgium, through Scandinavia and to the Balkans, and learn about the music and the basic steps for the mazurka, schottish, circle circassien, kolo, polska, hanter dro, chapelloise and others. Expand your repertoire with tunes that can inspire our pupils as well as our classical performances. If we play them around the world, someone will definitely move their feet at some point.
