THE CONCERT ENSEMBLE
THE CONCERT ENSEMBLE - PERFORMER OF SLAK'S SONGS: TWO MUSIC TOURS 2018/19 AND 2019/20
The Concert Ensemble of Slak's music was formed in 2017 on the initiative of accordion virtuoso Klemen Rošer. With the perfect performance of Slak's compositions, Klemen Rošer was the only one to obtain permission and the official title of the concert ensemble for the Slak music from the relatives of the family of the late Lojze Slak. Admittedly, several similar experiments have been observed before, but none of the performers have achieved such a level of precision of implementation.
The purpose of the Slak's music Concert Ensemble is clear - they want to recreate the unforgettable Slak melodies as genuinely as possible, try to keep them in the highest quality sound image and put them on stage in the most original sound possible. However, the boys themselves made sure that the ensemble also looked good on stage. They wore a replica of the first costumes of the Lojze Slak Ensemble, which is decorated with a Dolenjska vine motifs.
For the successful performance of Slak music, Klemen Rošer found rhythmic support in guitarist Boris Golavšek and bassist Andrej Sušec, and Klemen recognized the right rainbow palette of voices for the singing quartet consisting of: Ivan Rakovič, Anton Lesnik, Žiga Kovačec and Rok Štravs.
The Concert Ensemble really plays neatly. All this can be confirmed by visitors of music tours organized by Klemen in collaboration with the Slak family and the versatile Leopold Pungerčar. Concert evenings are usually supplemented by the well-known traveling exhibition of the Slak Ensemble.
