The Slowind Quintet is composed of soloists from the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra: Matej Sarc, oboe; Ales Kacjan, flute; Jurij Jenko, clarinet; Metod Tomac, french horn; and Paolo Calligaris, bassoon.
The repertoire of the Slowind ensemble includes both classical and 20th-century contemporary music, primarily recent works by modern composers. Slowind has performed at music festivals such as Ars Musica in Brussels (Belgium), the International Contemporary Music Festival in Opatija (Croatia), Musicora in Paris (France), Musica Danubiana and Slovene Music Days in Ljubljana (Slovenia), and the Twentieth Century Chamber Music Festival in Radenci (Slovenia). In 1999 Slowind participated at the 'Roaring Hoofs', the first international festival of western contemporary music and Mongolian national music in Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia. In 1999 and 2001 the ensemble toured the United States, and in 2002 it also ventured into Canada, presenting the most recent music by Slovene composers under the artistic mentorship of Robert Aitken in Toronto.
