The present release by SIGIC, the fist to present a selection of Slovenian orchestral music, is the beginning of an ambitious plan to introduce key works of Slovenian classical music.
The selection committee of this broadly conceived anthology of Slovenian orchestral music decided that this fist volume should present shorter orchestral works. For several reasons, this seemed to be the most appropriate way to take a broad fist look at Slovenian music for orchestra. For one thing, they are less formally predetermined, so listeners can fid among them examples of program music as well as pieces which are closer to absolute music. On the other hand, due to the relatively modest durations involved, it is possible to present them in their entirety, while at the same time still making it possible to have a broad chronological view that covers many decades of orchestral creativity.
