Notes on the Musma Composition
Music and its environment of Myths and Legends
From the composer’s quill of Tadeja Vulc, the city of Ljubljana will resound in a musical homage for youth choir and orchestra, providing the young choral singers with an opportunity to become familiar with contemporary musical means together with professional musicians. It will be accompanied by a presentation of the work and an illustration of all of the myths at a round table, while the participants of the related international musicology symposium will also become familiar with an analysis of the score.
