My solo recital at the Ljubljana Castle on 5th November 2014 as well as my Fernando Sor album release concert on 3rd October 2014 resulted in surprising amount of media coverage in the last few months.
First off, an article appeared in Primorske novice newspaper a day after my Fernando Sor release concert.
Soon after, I was invited on an interview with Ingrid Mager for Slovenian national newspaper Dnevnik, which was published under the title “From lute to multimedia” on 28th October 2014. You can read it here.
Only a day before my Ljubljana Castle concert, the entire 60-minute radio broadcast Zanimivosti iz sveta glasbe on Radio Koper was dedicated to my Fernando Sor album as well as my studio and concert activities. The broadcast featured a lengthy interview with Branka Kljun as well as several audio samples from the album. Listen to the entire broadcast here [Slovene].
Next up, only days after my Ljubljana Castle recital, I received a generous concert review by Mihael Paš (Radio Television Slovenia) that appeared in the Glabeni utrip radio programme on 12th November 2014. Read it here or listen to it on this link [Slovene] (starting at 25:50).
I have to say the entire experience around the Ljubljana Castle concert was exactly what I had hoped for. The staff was really kind and helpful (big thanks to Katarina Damjanov) and they really did their best with the event promotion (newspapers, radio stations, even a bunch of jumbo posters were set up all over the city), which is why the concert hall was almost full.
Soon after the concert I did another lengthy interview for Glasna, Slovenia’s only classical music magazine, focusing primarily on my record label, recording studio and blogging, about to be released in a few days.
Finally, another interview about my debut solo album, recording studio, record label, living in Vienna as a student, collaborating in ECHOS project and more, just got published in Kraški obzornik newspaper a few days ago.
I have no idea how this happened, but I somehow made it into a crossword as well. Ha ha! 🙂
