Nemanja Radulović

Violin

Biography

Winner of the 2015 Echo Klassik Award for Newcomer of the Year, Serbian-French violinist Nemanja Radulović has taken the classical music world by storm with his thrilling virtuosity, depth of expression, and adventurous programming, both in the recording studio and on the concert stage. An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, his most recent album, Baïka, features his evocative interpretations of Khachaturian’s Violin Concerto as well as Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, arranged for solo violin and chamber orchestra.

Fresh off a hotly-anticipated, ‘magical’ (Barry Creasy, musicOMH) BBC Proms debut featuring the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Kirill Karabits, and a Barber Violin Concerto whose ‘lyric delicacy and last-movement super-virtuosity were caught to near perfection’ (The Times), Radulović ’s recent and forthcoming highlights include an extensive European tour with the Russian State Academic Symphony and Andrey Boreyko; debut engagements with the Gothenburg Symphony, Philharmonia Orchestra, Sydney Symphony, MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony, Dusseldorf Symphony, RTE National Symphony Dublin, Orquesta Sinfonica de Valencia, and Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg; the season opening of the Jeunesse Musicale series at the Vienna Konzerthaus; a play/direct performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Munich Chamber Orchestra (resulting in an immediate re-invitation and on-going relationship with the ensemble); and a special collaboration with clarinettist Andreas Ottensamer, accordionist Ksenija Sidorova, and pianist Laure Favre-Kahn, performing to audiences at festivals across Germany, Switzerland and France.

Reviews

“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

“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.”

“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.”
