THE ADVENTURE STRINGS QUARTET

 

The string ensemble (originally Adventure Trio) was formed in 2007. It was founded by Slavomír Glos, Ivo Remenec and Klaudia Kudjová. Starting impulse to establish the ensemble was musical enthusiasm and fancy for travelling and adventures connected with playing in the streets of big cities. The musical ensemble perceives their street art as a kind of mission – creating good atmosphere, positive emotions and raising public awareness of good music not limited by musical genres in the streets of cities. Playing well-known popular compositions the ensemble tries to promote classical musical instruments and classical music that the present popular music is based on. The musicians are convinced that this is the way to interest the people who would not normally come across the type of music like this and thus to attract young generation to concert halls or musical clubs.

 

Adventure Strings visited many of Slovakia´s towns and cities -  Žilina, Martin, Bratislava, Košice, Prievidza, Banská Bystrica, Trenčín, Partizánske and Zemplínska Šírava. They also visited many  European cities as well – Vienna, Wiener Neustadt, Eisensadt, Klagenfurt, Beziers, Udine, Trieste, Venice, Pordenone, Treviso, Vicenza, Mestre, Modena, Ferrara, Vicenza, Verona, Firenze, Brescia, Cremona, Piacenza, Belluno, Merano, Bolzano, Bibione, Grado, Ravenna, Ljubljana, Koper, Barcelona, Lisbon and Bridgewater. The most valuable and at the same time the most distant city that the musicians experienced the atmosphere of playing music in the streets is Toronto, Canada. What was happening there was not beaten yet as black singers of a professional gospel ensemble spontaneously joined Adventure Strings playing Blíž k tebe Bože môj (Closer to You, My God) in the street.
