Pavel Keyta

The clarinettist Pavel Keyta completed (under)graduate (1990) and postgraduate clarinet studies at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana, under the mentorship of the legend of Slovene clarinettists, the master musician Alojz Zupan. Since 1996 he has been solo-clarinettist with the central state symphony orchestra Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra (SF) and associate professor at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana and at the Music Academy "Ino Mirkovich" in Lovran near Opatija (Croatia). As a soloist, lecturer at international master's courses and member of various chamber ensembles and orchestras he regularly performs and records at home and abroad: Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Croatia, Italy, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Macedonia, Holland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the USA. In 1998, his first discographic recording, with the String Quartet of the Slovenian Philharmonic, was issued by the music recording division of RTV Slovenia, Zalozba kaset in plosc (ZKP) RTV Slovenija. Pavel Keyta is also a (founding) member of the Woodwind Quintet ARIART (estd. 1996), with whom he recorded a CD (1998), also produced by ZKP RTV Slovenija. He is also a member of the Slovenian Clarinet Sextet and the founder and member of the (first) Slovenian Clarinet Choir. In 1993 together with the Slovenian Clarinet Quartet, he recorded, and issued a CD entitled "Klarinetovanje". The recording of the Slovene Police Orchestra features Keyta's solo in Rossini's Introduction, theme and variations. Pavel Keyta also plays and collaborates with the orchestras Slovenicum, Consortium musicum, Slovenian Chamber Orchestra, the Slovene Police Orchestra, Workers band in his birthplace Trbovlje, and regularly records for radio and television. At competitions he has been awarded nine first prizes, and for his performances of (both) Weber's Concertos for clarinet and orchestra (F-minor and E-flat major) he received the Ljubljana Academy and University Preseren Prize. Truly worthy of admiration was the great performance by the young clarinettist in Rossini, whose virtuoso work he interpreted with exceptional technical assurance and musical ardour.(B. Ucakar, in DELO, Ljubljana, 27.3.1996)... Keyta's solo playing on the clarinet was yet another of the instrumentalist's concert brilliances, ... (F. Kriznar, in DELO, Ljubljana, 9.7.1996)... The concert for bass clarinet and wind orchestra ... was performed with like mastery by Pavel Keyta.´ (A. Susar, in DNEVNIK, Ljubljana, 18.4.1998)... The soloist Pavel Keyta has revealed to us a fact worthy of consideration: that an instrument which is mainly hidden in the symphony orchestra may also emerge most convincingly as a solo instrument. A virtuoso performance with a special colour and range, and a fluent ease in the sonorities.(B. Ucakar, in DELO, Ljubljana, 20.4.1999)... Pavel Keyta and the percussionist Barbara Kresnik shaped the composer's sincere concept with their vigorous sound. (B. Ucakar, in DELO, Ljubljana, 4.2.1999)... This was a more than successful evening of the most outstanding clarinet music which most certainly can only be produced by a great creative name - such as Pavel Keyta most certainly is. (F. Kriznar, in RADIO SLOVENIJA, Ljubljana, 2002)
