Metabonma concert series fulfils the goal it set itself – to bring classical music to Metelkova for the first time on a larger scale. The five concerts a year feature several renowned foreign musicians, but the focus is mainly on Slovenian musicians who have the opportunity to collaborate with established local composers. In recent years, the boundaries between genres of music have been blurred and it is often difficult to place certain music in a specific box. This is also the case with classical music, which in recent decades has embraced and benefited from many of the characteristics of folk, popular and alternative music. In Metabonmai, we present to the public a wide and varied range of music which, in one word, we describe as classical.
FriForma concert series is complemented by Metabonmai, a series for classical music for stage and contemporary composition, curated by Jože Bogolin and Simon Klavžar. Andrea Centazzo, Mate Bekavac, Bruce Hamilton, Marko Hatlak, Valentine Collet, the saxophone quartet 4-Saxsess and the percussion duo Drumartica are the musical performers who have presented themselves as part of Metabonma since 2014. The concert series takes place exclusively at Klub Gromka, where classical and contemporary composed music is rarely presented.
