Concert was organized in the co-production of RTV Slovenia, Festival Ljubljana and Cankarjev dom and received very good media coverage.

“The evening long concert of Bojan Adamič works has revealed the master’s extraordinary broad filed of activity and creativity. The selection of works has been woven into six program sections, as a metaphor or symbol for Adamič six decades of musical creativity. Among Slovenian musicians there are hardly any who can match his creative and performance work, and a few who measure up to his artistic personality. Adamič’s deeds and music remain alive.”
