Concert by the Slovak musical trio “Triango” and exhibition opening in cooperation with the Embassy of the Slovak Republic

26.09.2016

On Thursday, 29 September 2016 at 6 pm, the National Library of Estonia will host a concert by the Slovak musical trio Triango in the Main Conference Hall. Triango is a unique project of the well-known Slovak pianist, composer and conductor Peter Breiner, jazz violinist Stano Palúch and versatile accordion player Boris Lenko.


Peter Breiner is one of the world's most recorded musicians, with over 200 CDs released and millions of units sold. His compositions have been played in concerts worldwide and his rich portfolio includes well-known arrangements of the Beatles and Elvis Presley, as well as musical scores for popular TV shows and movies. He lives in New York.
For this concert, the trio has prepared jazz modifications of Slovak folk songs for chamber music titled Slovenské tance (Slovak Dances) in cooperation with multi-instrumentalist Milan Rendoš. The concert is open for public and free of charge.

 


Before the concert at 5 pm, the Embassy of the Slovak Republic invites guests to an opening of the art exhibition showing children's views on human rights in the 6th Floor Gallery of the National Library of Estonia (Tõnismägi 2, Tallinn). The exhibition presents the winning artworks from the 2014 and 2015 art competition “Human Rights through Children's Eyes”.
The competition was first announced in 2013 by the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic and Chairman of the Slovak Government's Council for Human Rights, National Minorities and Gender Equality Miroslav Lajčák. The aim of the competition is to spur discussion on human rights, tolerance and human dignity from the early stage of children's education.


The artworks were created by students of elementary schools and 8-year gymnasiums in Slovakia. The themes of the competition “I have a right to my opinion” and “Being myself – I am who I am!” refer to the Article 12 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child devoted to the participation of the child in all matters affecting the child.
The co-organizers of the competition are the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic, Slovak Youth Institute IUVENTA, the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family of the Slovak Republic and the Slovak Committee for UNICEF.
The exhibition will remain open until 20 October 2016.
