Benjamin's latest music project.

New Album "SONGS OF MY HOME"

"Songs of my home" represents some of the most important Slovenian songs in our history. Dedicated to the 25th Anniversary of the country's Independence and as a wish to preserve Slovenian music heritage for the next generations.

Benjamin is the author, producer and record producer. He is also the composer-arranger, field recording engineer, conductor (choirs) and violin solo performer.

About:

The recording of the Album involved more than 140 musicians, from top musicians and world class recording engineers and mastering professionals to children choir as well as many kind people that made this project possible.
The album is composed of 15 Slovenian songs, newly rewritten for voice, instrumental soloists, symphonic orchestra and choir.

64th LJUBLJANA FESTIVAL CONCERT

The album was premiered on 10th September at Ljubljana's most prestigious open-air summer concert place - Ljubljana's Križanke. The symphonic orchestra of the Slovenian soloists under the leadership of Benjamin Izmajlov along with all the other album performers enchanted the audience which exploded with standing ovations and words of gratitude at the end.
