The chamber music ensemble Classical With Attitude connects three promising academic musicians. The idea for the trio was born at the beginning of the pandemic out of desire to go back to performing and creative expression. The ensemble wishes to offer to their public the hard work and effort that they have given their music in the last two years, hoping in turn to gain experience they have missed out on because of the pandemic. They are driven and full of aspiration for the future. With their tour last year, they performed at various international festivals (Festival Soboški dnevi, Festival Cantabile, Festival Arsana) and gave independent concerts at home (Grand hotel Union, Zemono Palace, the France Prešeren Center for Slavic cultures). All three musicians are students at the University of music and performing arts in Graz with outstanding independent achievements.
Soprano Adna Cinac has won the international competition Iuventus Canti in Slovakia. She has also performed with the Ljubljana Conservatory for Music and Ballet Symphony Orchestra as a soloist. Laura Bartelj won this year’s Grand Prize at the international competition Universal Stars, as well as the gold prize for best classical performance with her violin. As a soloist, she has performed with Cantabile Symphony Orchestra at the Festival des Anches D’Azur in Saint Tropez. Maria Iaiza, a promising young Italian pianist, has recently graduated from TGiuseppe Tartini Conservatory in Trieste with full marks. She has also trained at the University of Music and Perfoming Arts in Vienna and at University of Arts in Graz. She has received multiple important awards, most notably at the piano competition Palmanova Città and the international competition in Bitola.
