CONCERT BY DUO JANEZ ŠKOF & MARJAN STANIĆ

28.05.24

Thursday, June 6 2024, 19:30, Under the Arcades of the University of Maribor Library

Join us for a captivating evening as part of the Evenings Under the Arcades event cycle, featuring a unique blend of noble poetry with chanson, cabaret, ethnic, and jazz influences.

Both members of the duo are renowned for their diverse roles. However, they are best known to a broader audience as members of the band Čompe. For nearly 30 years, despite having only one album, this unconventional sextet has delighted audiences of all ages with a unique combination of noble poetry and a raw mix of chanson, cabaret, ethno, jazz, and a touch of punk attitude. Škof and Stanić's musical style closely mirrors that of their parent band, though the duo's more minor instrumentation results in a more intimate and less sonically bustling performance. There is a more direct, almost "telepathic" exchange between Škof, who plays the accordion and sings, and Stanić, who waves and strikes left and right, above and below … The duo maintains a solid connection to Čompe through the poetry of prominent Slovenian poets such as Dane Zajc, Milan Jesih, Edvard Kocbek, and Andrej Rozman Roza. In the hands of this dynamic duo, the poets' verses are brought to life in a fresh, compelling, and inviting manner, enriched by subtle musical nuances and a well-crafted performance.

Before the concert, at 18:00, there will be a presentation of Marko Košir's monograph, Stane Sever: Genius on the Theatre Stage in the Glazer Hall of the University of Maribor Library.

Admission is free. You are cordially invited!
