SLOWIND

Slowind-index

  • Slowind, Wind Quintet

    The wind quintet Slowind was established 22 years ago, and has become the most active new music ensemble in Slovenia. As well as performing practically all of the works of the standard wind quintet repertoire, the members of Slowind have developed a reputation as uncompromising performers of contemporary music, from the classics of the avant-garde to works by the youngest composers, many of whom are not yet established but are very promising composers of our time. By commissioning new works, Slowind constantly encourages young Slovenian composers and is glad to respond to invitations to perform new compositions on many European stages.
