Medieval and Renaissance music festival
Nova Gorica – Goriška brda
19—22 September 2019
Flores Musicae festival is the only ancient music festival in the western part of Slovenia and the only festival dedicated to medieval and Renaissance music in Slovenia. In addition to promoting the research in this field and keeping Slovenia's musical heritage alive, the festival also animates the historic sites between Nova Gorica and the Goriška brda region, which are part of our cultural heritage.
The artistic director of the festival is the renowned Slovenian guitarist and lutenist Bor Zuljan, who completed his studies in guitar, lute, medieval music and music pedagogy at the Haute école de musique de Genève. The series of concerts of Slovenian and international musicians will illustrate the various traditions of the longest period in music history.
