“When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am invulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest times, and to the latest.”
– Henry David Thoreau

This year’s “Ursus” will be a festival of opposites and connections. Three concerts where modernity will meet with the past. The contradictions are, after all, only virtual; musical styles – just an illusion, which hides the essence. Especially close are Baroque and Jazz music: improvisation, walking bass / basso continuo, interchangeable solo and tutti parts … if we look at purely musical connections. However enjoying music connects everyone. Not only active musicians but also the passive listeners – another apparent contradiction, which dissapears in the moment of the all-embracing experience of Music.
Welcome this summer to the homestead Medved in Podkum, Slovenia!
