Composer
Petric Ivo
Description

* 1931 Ljubljana

Born 16 June 1931 in Ljubljana, where he still lives and works. Studied composition (under L.M.Skerjanc) and conducting (under Dr. D.Švara) at the Ljubljana Academy of Music, graduating in 1958. He has been a member of the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra (1955-58), a freelance musician (1958 – 72), secretary of the DSS (1972-80) and since 1971 the director of Editions DSS. Between 1979 and 1995 he was artistic director of the Slovene Philarmonic Society. Petrič is an important figure in the promotion of contemporary Slovene music in that he was among the founders of the Composers’ Club at the Academy of Music (1954) and the Pro Musica Viva group (1958), which led to the formation of the “Slavko Osterc” Ensemble, one of the most important ensembles led by Ivo Petrič (1962 – 82) and one which has been responsible for stimulating more new compositions than any other 20th century Slovene ensemble. Petrič’s output as a composer is enormous and varied and of a very high quality. It is typified by instrumental balance. His search for new sounds began with Slovene precedessors and the classics of 20th century European music. His music features a neo-impressionist refinement, a predisposition for strings and ubiquitous lyricism. Although he dabbled initially in graphical forms, he is now returning increasingly to normal metrical forms and a linking of the achievements of tried and tested contemporaneity. Petrič’s opus is rich both in symphonic music and in chamber and instrumental works. Particularly noteworthy are the compositions dedicated to well-known concert performers (or which have been commissioned by them). At a time when Slovenia’s musical output is relatively rich and varied, and competition is severe, Petrič remains one of the most respected composers working today.
