Nemanja Radulović



Serbian-French violinist Nemanja Radulović champions the power of music to bring people together with his unique energy and candour, thrilling virtuosity, depth of expression, and adventurous programming. His hotly-anticipated BBC Proms debut in 2019 with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Kirill Karabits featured a Barber Violin Concerto played with ‘lyric delicacy and last-movement super-virtuosity’ (The Times).

Signed exclusively to Warner Classics in 2021, Mr Radulović’s debut album on the label – ROOTS – represents a beguiling sonic journey evoked by his many influences and inspirations to date. His previous album, Baïka, one of a string of nine successful recordings made with Deutsche Grammophon and the Universal Music Group labels, was declared ‘a fiery whirlwind of an album…’ by BBC Music Magazine, which awarded it 5 stars and the coveted Critics’ Choice Award. Gramophone Magazine praised Baïka’s ‘imaginative pairings’, saying that ‘…Radulović dispatches [the Khachaturian Violin Concerto] with energy and firepower…’ and that ‘…with Radulović as narrator, this is an album with entrancing tales to tell.’

Double Sens

Double Sens was formed in 2008, when violinist Nemanja Radulović brought together some of his favourite French and Serbian musicians to perform together as a chamber orchestra. This unique formation is united by friendship and family, as well as a love and desire of sharing music and progressively asserts its identity on the stage, both in France and abroad.

Radulović says “My music, my friends? My France, my Serbia? My life before and now? The idea of creating Double Sens was born thanks to those questions! I wanted to gather my Serbian and French musician friends and didn’t have to think about it for too long, as I personally knew each musician, and was certain that everyone’s different personality would work well with the others, in order to become this ensemble where the most important thing is the happiness of sharing the music and stage together. When we performed for the first time, we all felt the desire to continue making music together and meet again as soon as possible. It has now been a few years that we play together, and this feeling is still present; we all can’t wait until the next time we’re all together!”.

Radulović and Double Sens have recorded four albums together: The 5 Seasons (Decca, 2011), Journey East (Deutsche Grammophon, 2015), and Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations in an original arrangement for viola (released in 2017 by Deutsche Grammophon) as well as Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade for Radulović’s last album Baika (2018). This last album was also released as a visual album entitled Unique, which takes the ensemble to Carnac and features other pieces by Bach, Vivaldi, as well as some traditional and world music pieces. This release was featured in cinemas all across France. In 2022, Radulović and Double Sens record their first album for Warner. Entitled Roots, the album presents arrangements of traditional and modern musics, in a journey around the world.

The ensemble actively performs across the world, with recent and forthcoming highlights at Paris’ Théâtre des Champs Elysées, Vienna’s Konzerthaus, the Düsseldorf Tonhalle, the Théâtre de l’Archipel, Opéra de Marseille, Kolarac Hall, Kyoto Concert Hall, as well as the Berlin Philharmonie.

Nemanja Radulović’s New Album “Roots” Is Available Now

Violinist Nemanja Radulović's new album Roots is available now on Warner Classics. In his first album with the record label, Roots draws on a diversity of cultures in a musical tour of the world. Imagined during the Covid-19 pandemic, Radulović took time to consider...


“Radulović was wonderful throughout, but excelled in the tricky and controversial third section. The finale was deemed too difficult to play when debuted, but Radulović tackled the piece with breath-taking skill and a truly virtuoso performance.”

Aliya Al-Hassan

Broadway World

“He’s an engaging performer – swaying, dancing, and in complete communication with the orchestra, catching the eye of each section that accompanies him, as though sharing a special moment. […] Radulović, though, packed a punch when it was needed, and the final movement was full of virtuosic sawing that elicited a well-deserved roar from the audience at its completion.”

Barry Creasy

“Firstly, his sound is utterly beautiful, exactly what the long lines of Barber’s concerto require. His technique is boundless, heard initially in terms of the sure tuning of his stopping and, later, in that perilous finale.”

Colin Clarke

“It was in Ravel’s fiendish Tzigane that Radulović really caught fire, attacking the opening cadenza with gritty heft, before backing off suddenly for soft brushes of melody, the violinist embracing the improvisatory style of the composer’s gypsy-inspired work with natural showmanship and virtuosity.”
