Irena Z.: »Since 2004, when Žiga Stanič wrote “Pravljice” (Tales) for zither solo, some time has passed and since then my goal was, that all of these songs from Slovenian authors would be recorded. From a withy comment, an idea emerged, grew, evolved and ultimately came true. Solo zither sounds very nice, full, but what if....? So in 2010, with zither player Franja Kočnik, zither duo was born. Duo zither and violin sounds also very interesting, and soon a violin player Špela Huzjak joined in. But zither also goes along perfectly with the accordion, so Janez Dovč as a great musician and accordion player just couldn't stay away. And of course we can't forget the arrangement of Slovenian folk song “Na planincah”, with an awesome ethno group Jararaja and an improvisation of another Slovenian folk song with string instruments. All in all “Cvetje v Bachu” is a compilation of songs that represents Slovenia in many different ways, from Slovenian  traditional instruments to Slovenian traditional Folk songs, but with a new sound and a little twist.«
