GERALD FENECH enjoys his visit
to Festival Maribor in Slovenia

 

I had not been to Maribor for a few years although it is a city which I know quite well and which is replete with cultural variety and a throbbing sense of vibrancy. Maribor holds an annual festival of classical music which is diverse and eclectic and this year's [5-13 September 2013] was no exception. Although the theme of 'Less is More' mirrored the economic difficulties through which the country is passing at this present time, the end result certainly demonstrated that quality was not in any way compromised.

This time round, the participating orchestra was the Chamber Orchestra of the Comic Opera Berlin and they brought a bluff vibrancy to proceedings...
