From an early age on, thanks to the fact that my father was a cellist and composer himself, I experienced the creative process and very close collaboration on writing pieces for my instrument, violin.

Later on in my life, the connection to composers came always very easy and natural, and through my career as a violinist as a result of that mutual understanding, several pieces were written for me.

My wish is to make them all a part of the CD ‘D a r k V e l v e t’ and in that way present them to the world and give them ‘life’ and a chance to be heard and recognised as part of a violinistic repertoire.

In addition to the selection of already composed music from 1990 on, three new works are currently being written for me especially as a part of this project. It makes me very excited to bring this process closer to the audience through a video diary and journaling. My wish is to connect music that is being created as we speak, with the audience and give the listener an opportunity and guidance to get introduced to the language of new music. I use ‘D a r k V e l v e t’ as a synonym for the sound before music, that due to the opportunity of being close enough to the process of its creation, I learned to speak.

The compositions on this CD could be seen as an autobiographical story. It is a reflection of my Yugoslav and Dutch identity which is a mirror of my musical world. As Novi Sad (Serbia), is the cultural capital of Europe in 2022, my wish is to implement this CD release and take it on a tour to the city I come from.

On the programme tonight, pieces of Hartig, Bruci, Zebeljan, Tcoupaki, Waller and others.
