Seviqc Brežice festival
The most beautiful early music concerts, performed at Slovenia's cultural heritage sites are presenting first-class artists from all around the world. Only the most distinguished artists, who perform an exquisite programme of the highest quality, are invited to be part of our concerts. We uncover both the European and the world’s musical legacy through different elements of our programme, while devoting special attention to the performance of the music which was created on Slovenian grounds. Each year the programme of concerts is comprised of the musical heritage from the Middle Ages to the beginning of the 20th century. Music at the concerts is performed by authentic instruments and in an authentic way. We keep live art in the foreground, as is evident from our name Seviqc: »SEmper VIva Quam Creata« or »always alive as created«.
The festival’s programme is designed solely on the manner of historically informed performance and takes place only at Slovenia's cultural heritage sites, which are historically important locations and are especially interesting for visitors.
