Some of you may already know about the Prešeren recital which is due to take place tomorrow at noon on Prešeren square in Ljubljana. With it the Slovene Association of Dramatic Artists celebrates the Culture Day, the day when France Prešeren, the greatest Slovenian poet died in 1849.
Pengovsky is shamelessly promoting the recital 🙂
On that note: it seems that the reason for celebrating his death rather than his birth is entirely coincidental. Culture Day was first marked during WWII as a form of protest. For various reasons it couldn’t have been held on 3 December (Prešeren’s birthday) and it was postponed until 8 February. The day stuck as Culture Day ever since. It is also a holiday – not that it makes much difference this year, does it 😈
At any rate – just as in the past, The Firm™ is co-organiser, and just as in previous years, we’ll be broadcasting the event in cable network, webcasting it on our websites (classic and mobile), as well as making it available on demand (previous events available here).
Schedule permitting I’ll post an embedded stream tomorrow, but as a backup, here is the link to the Prešen webcast, which will be live from about 11.50. For those of you who are constantly on the move, there will also be a mobile webcast on http://mobile.radiokaos.info.
If you’re in the neighbourhood tomorrow, drop by Prešeren sqare, but if you can’t make it, take a quick peek on your computer or mobile phone.
