About

After his exciting journey into the musical tradition of Eastern Europe (Journey East) and the Baroque sound-scapes of J.S. Bach (Bach), Nemanja Radulović now turns his attention to the Russian master of the Romantic era, Tchaikovsky, excelling as violinist and (in an arrangement for viola and string ensemble of the famed Rococo Variations) a violist.

The Rococo Variations were recorded in Belgrade with ensemble Double Sens (French for: “double direction” and “double meaning”). The group reflects perfectly Nemanja’s dual past between Paris and Belgrade, as it includes his former student-friends for Serbia, and his friends from the Conservatoire de Paris (including two members of the Fontanarosa family).

The Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto is linked to Nemanja’s arrival in Paris. He began to work on the Concerto with his Conservatoire de Paris teacher Patrice Fontanarosa. Since then, this piece has been the concerto Nemanja has played most often during his career, opening the doors to the great concert halls of the world like in Paris, London or Tokyo.

The Concerto was recorded in Istanbul with the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra and Sascha Goetzel, with which Nemanja feels he finds the freedom and mutual sprit to develop and express what is fundamentally important to him in the respective work.

2018 marks the 125th anniversary of the death of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893).

“… truly exquisite technique and tone.” - Gramophone

“Nemanja is dazzling -- a really serious, and exciting musician.” - Classic FM

“… there is no denying Radulovic's phenomenal skill and flair … he micro-inflects every phrase with a truly dazzling range of dynamics, temporal freedom and vibrato rates.” - BBC Music Magazine
