About

Vasilije Mokranjac (1923-1984) belonged to a prominent Serbian musical dynasty. His great musical gifts combine with an unassertive and introverted nature to create a unique catalogue of often incredibly virtuoso piano music, recorded here for the first time in its entirety. From the first elegant Menuetto to the last Prélude written at the time of his tragic death, pianist Ratimir Martinović finds Mokranjac’s music ‘exceptionally profound and spiritually uplifting’.

Critically acclaimed pianist Ratimir Martinović occupies a special status among artists of his generation. Born in Kotor, Montenegro, Martinović studied under virtuoso Kemal Gekić at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad where he now serves as a professor of piano. He received his Master’s degree in 2002, and has performed at over 700 concerts with over 60 orchestras in prestigious international venues such as the Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall, Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, Shanghai Oriental Art Center, the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, Seoul Arts Center and the Moscow International House of Music. Martinović is the founder and director of the KotorArt Festival in his hometown. Together with the Mokranjac family, Martinović is the founder and president of the Vasilije Mokranjac Foundation in Belgrade.
