More about the concerts and excerpts from reviews:
Ljubljana - Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre Forget pomposity, Predin 1.3 (in 2013) builds on minimalism.Last night (Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre, 9 February 2013) he shared the stage with renowned virtuosos: accordionist Janez Dovč, guitarist Robi Pikl, and tubist Goran Krmac.If three people make a group, then the three musicians and Predin make for a baroque orchestra enabling us to relive our memories in a new way.Forget the classic rhythm section, even though it was heard even more clearly in the absence of drums and bass - as peculiar as that might sound.(Klavdija Kopina, MMC RTV 10 February 2013)
Belgrade - Kolarac
In line with his very long expiry date, the Slovenian troubadour gave a spectacular performance to all the citizens of Belgrade and other people in love.
With his boyish smile and unobtrusive demeanour, the Slovenian musician, always very welcome in Belgrade and always ready to crack a joke, created a leisurely and pleasantly intimate atmosphere more often experienced in a living room with your closest friends than at concerts which can so frequently get cold and boring.With its virtuosity as well as highly sensitive improvisation, the very atypical trio of guitar (bouzouki), accordion and tuba (with occasional finely‑tuned underlying electronic rhythmical backgrounds) created an adventurous and superbly refined soundscape.(Marko Nikolić, Popboks, 15 February 2013)
Zagreb - VIP Club:
"It is pure joy to see a performer enjoy every segment of his performance - from the short stories, anecdotes and witty remarks made between individual songs, the songs dating back to the very beginnings of his musical career, the covers, to the newest tracks, completely different from the classic works. Even though all of the songs have been rearranged and adapted to what was perhaps a slightly unorthodox line‑up of accordion, guitar and tuba, they have not lost any of their flair - quite the opposite, they have benefited from the maturity of vintage Zoran, who has flirted with such musical expressions for quite a while and who definitely feels at home here." (Terapija.net, 10 March 2013)
Split - Kazalište lutaka theatre:
"The tracks, formally ranging from rock and 'hot club' through ethno and pop to chansons, have gained a new dimension and - check this out! - a surprisingly interesting shift towards an unexpectedly refreshing Balkans melodics. In a flight of inspiration they were well‑rounded by a tuba, accordion and bouzouki with its "oriental" sound. In fact this was not simply a concert - it was an intimate soiree, a musical gathering of friends, an exchange of gentleness between Zoran and his audience, lasting - the ladies in the hall would surely agree - two heavenly hours." (Zlatko Gall, Jutarnji list - 24 February 2013)
