Caught in the fast pace of the modern world, where various elements interrupt almost our every step, we return more and more often to the magical world of classical music and culture, using our evenings and precious free moments to relax and fill ourselves with spirituality. This is the world of Anja Bukovec, a young, energetic and sensuous violinist, who, after starting off in Slovenia, enhanced, polished and completed her musical education abroad. European metropolises, such as Prague, Vienna and Köln, have expanded and opened Anja’s understanding for music and the world, which is clearly reflected in the way she plays her violin, presenting us with an expressive and unique interpretation of music. Anja Bukovec was born in Ljubljana, where she lived until the age of thirteen. In this period she came to know the world of the musical art, first with professor Vildana Repše, who helped the six year old girl come to love the violin and after that with Professor Vasilij Meljnikov in the framework of the Music Studio Tartini. She continued her schooling at the Music Conservatorium in Prague with Professor Jaroslav Foltyn.

Two years later she managed to pass the admittance exam with Professor Igor Ozim, one of the greatest music pedagogues of our time. Under his wing, she continued her studies at the School of Higher Musical Education in Köln, where she – with intermediate one-year schooling in Vienna - spent another eight years. She graduated with prof. Ozim in 2001.

After additional perfecting with Professor Gratchia Arutunjan, she returned to Slovenia in 2002, after ten years of schooling abroad, where she completed her post-graduate studies with Professor Vasilij Meljnikov at the Academy of Music. She is the recipient of numerous awards from international competitions for young violinists. Anja is a popular and appreciated guest of numerous casts and orchestras. She appeared with the orchestra of the Slovenian Philharmonic Society, the Symphonic Orchestra of RTV Slovenia, the Philharmonic Society of Rijeka, the orchestra of Anton Webrn from Vienna and the Philharmonic Society of Belgrade; she also collaborated with numerous conductors, among others with Georg Pehlivanian, Mark Letonja, Uroš Lajovic, Anton Nanut, Alan Buribaj and Alexander Walker. As a solo performer and member of chamber music casts, she appears regularly in Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Serbia, in Croatia and Bohemia, and she also appeared in Romania, Australia and in China. She is famous as an artist, who is proficient in different musical genres.

She is at home in the treasure trove of classical music, while she also confidently crosses over into other musical worlds and that is the reason we also meet her in the company of musicians, who create ethno, pop and rock. She also devotes herself with great interest to modern classical music. In 2004 she carried out a premier violin concert of the Slovenian composer Nina Šenk at the Young Euro Classic Festival in Berlin, where the composition was - due to the convincing interpretation - awarded with the highest award of the festival. In March 2007, she released her long-awaited debut CD, titled Gemini, whose dozen compositions of Stravinsky, Piazzolla and Gershwin represent a profile of Anja’s creativity in a way that is completely her own, accompanied by the excellent Moldavian pianist Sergej Filioglo. A month after that she also introduced the aforementioned CD on her first solo tour, accompanied by the pianist Denys Masliuk.

They also upgraded the compositions from the CD with noted compositions of Bloch and Rachmaninov. With seven recitals, they introduced themselves in all major Slovenian localities. At the end of December 2007, the violinist Anja Bukovec, together with the help of the 50-member symphonic orchestra Simfonika and with the cooperation of the jazz singer Jadranka Juras, the violin player Vasilij Meljnikov and the piano player Simon Krečič, conducted a first-rate program of classical pieces combined with jazz and film music. Most of the songs were adapted especially for this occasion by the accomplished Slovenian composer Jani Golob. In the first half of 2008, Anja will set out on her first independent World Tour, while concentrating on the release of her second album, which will be presented at the big concert in December, in the latter half of the year.
