Not many symphonic orchestras can boast such a rich and long-standing tradition as the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra with its predecessors, the Academia philharmonicorum (1701), the Philharmonic Society (1794) and the first Slovenian Philharmonic (1908–1913). Among the many respectable artists, guest members of the Slovenian Philharmonic, we will only mention Haydn, Beethoven, Paganini, Brahms and Kleiber. The Orchestra, re-established in 1947, was led by renowned national and foreign directors, as Bogo Leskovic, Samo Hubad, Lovro von Matačić, Oskar Danon, Uroš Lajovic, Milan Horvat, Marko Letonja and George Pehlivanian, Emmanuel Villaume, Keri-Lynn Wilson. Currently, the Chief Conductor is Uroš Lajovic. The Orchestra has confirmed its renown in a range of guest appearances in Europe, the United States, Japan, Oman and a series of international festivals. On many occasions, they cooperated with leading conductors and musicians, and the Orchestra's concerts have been recorded on over 70 compact discs.
The concert has been organised in cooperation with the Kogoj's Days Festival.
