After a week filled with concerts and indeed rain, the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra (DSO) enters the second week of the Autumn Music Variety festival with performances by great musicians.
On Friday, October 15 at 8:30pm in the Rector's Palace, a concert by the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra will be held under the direction of the famous Slovenian conductor Uroš Lajovic and with a solo performance by Dubrovnik horn player, Toni Kursar.
The Autumn Music Variety highlights Dubrovnik musicians through solo performances in collaboration with prominent conductors. An interesting program with compositions by A. Ivančić, R. Strauss and L. van Beethoven was carefully selected for this concert.
Maestro Uroš Lajovic was born in Ljubljana, where he studied composition and conducting at the Academy of Music, graduating in 1967.
In the period from 1972 to 1991 he worked in the Slovenian Philharmonic, first as an assistant, and from 1978 as a permanent conductor. At the same time he was the leader of the Chamber Orchestra of RTV Slovenia from 1974 to 1976, chief conductor of the Croatian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra from 1979 to 1981. He founded the Chamber Orchestra Slovenicum in 1988 with which he organized concert series in Ljubljana and performed throughout Slovenia.
