Meet Milica Djordjevic!
The Composers Association of Serbia (ISCM Serbian Section) invests enormous energy and even greater enthusiasm to make Serbian music and Serbian composers visible (memorial plaques, busts, editions of postage stamps, TV and Radio shows, photos and interviews), to make them available (publishing of music scores, CDs, DVDs, complimentary copies for music schools and musical institutions, at home and abroad), to make felt their presence (their music featured on the repertoires of symphonic orchestras, chamber ensembles and soloists, living on concert stages, broadcast on radio and television, discussed in professional publications, in the system of musical and general education), and to make them well known (theme concerts, concerts of anthological works throughout the country competitions and festivals all over the world...).
The candidate of ISCM Serbian Section on this year's WNMD in Zagreb is young composer Milica Djordjevic (*Belgrade, 1984).
„Milica Djordjevic possesses a potential of imagination, craft and a sense of the right measure, and as such she has made a conspicuous entrance into Serbian music, and music in the world at large. She is a composer whose mastery in solving the problems of time and space is simply dangerous. Her sonic structures, occasionally tinged with archaic music from the Balkans are densely dramatic, with powerful and acute motion alternating with oases of pure dreaming and pages of almost surrealist expressivity." (Katarina Lazarević, executive secretary of The Composers Association of Serbia)
You can meet Milica Djordjevic on HRT Radio Symphony concert on Thursday 14th April at 7.30pm in Lisinski Hall where her piece Path of White Bones will have it's world première.
