Carmina Slovenica is generally well known as one of the foremost avant-garde vocal ensembles, creating contemporary music projects "Choregie – vocal theatre" by introducing a new concept which incorporates music, drama, movement and other stage elements. However, this time we can hear the choir performing chamber music, live recorded at the international festival Music September.

Concerts were conducted by Karmina Šilec.
