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, Nemanja’s 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.
Recent highlights include Nemanja’s critically acclaimed residency with the Bournemouth Symphony
[“Radulović had his audience spellbound for the entire concert…” Andy Martin, Bournemouth Echo];
his orchestral debut at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic; the
opening of the Jeunesse Musicale series at the Vienna Konzerthaus; a play/direct performance with
the Munich Chamber Orchestra (resulting in an immediate re-invitation to work with the ensemble);
and a special new collaboration with clarinettist Andreas Ottensamer, accordionist Ksenija Sidorova,
and pianist Laure Favre-Kahn, performing to audiences at Schleswig-Holstein, Gstaad, Périgord Noir,
and Impérial Annecy festivals. Additional highlights include a very successful return to the Royal
Liverpool Philharmonic, Vasily Petrenko conducting, and a European tour with the I, CULTURE
Orchestra and Kirill Karabits, featuring visits to the Radio France Festival in Montpellier and the Tivoli
Concert Hall in Copenhagen.
An artist who seeks to broaden the boundaries of classical music, Nemanja champions the power of
music to bring people together with his unique energy and candour. He has amassed a legion of loyal
fans around the world who have enjoyed his performances with many of the world’s leading
orchestras, including the Munich Philharmonic, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Staatskapelle
Dresden, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony in Tokyo,
Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Orquesta Nacional de España, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic,
Helsinki Philharmonic, Salzburg Camerata, NDR Radiophilharmonie in Hanover, WDR
Sinfonieorchester in Cologne, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Belgian National Orchestra,
Orchestre National de Lille, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI in Turin, Orchestra della Toscana,
Tampere Philharmonic, Gävle Symphony, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Copenhagen Phil, Geneva
Camerata, Macao Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic, and the Bilbao Orkestra Sinfonikoa.
Nemanja has an equal passion for the intimacy of chamber music, and is an increasingly active
recitalist on the international circuit. He has performed at such notable venues as New York’s Carnegie
Hall, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Philharmonie, both the Salle Pleyel and the Théâtre des
Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Athens Megaron, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, and
the Melbourne Recital Centre in Australia. His many recital partners include Marielle Nordmann, Laure
Favre-Kahn, and Susan Manoff, the latter with whom he has also recorded a disc of Beethoven Sonatas
released on the Decca/Universal Music label.
Nemanja also regularly undertakes a play/direct role with his infectious, high-energy ensemble The
Devils’ Trills [noted for their “immense purity, artistic force, passion, intimacy and exquisite dynamic
choices leaving the audience in complete astonishment”, Johannes Seifert, Augsburger Allgemeine]
and his chamber orchestra, Double Sens, recently celebrated for their recordings of Bach and Rimsky-
Korsakov, as well as The 5 Seasons, a piece that combines Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with a new
composition – Spring in Japan – by Aleksandar Sedlar and dedicated to the Japanese tsunami victims
in 2011. Their other recent recordings include Paganini Fantasy (2013), Journey East (2014), BACH
(2016), Tchaikovsky (2017) and most recently Baïka (2018).
Nemanja’s recognition for his work in classical music includes International Revelation of the Year by
the Victoires de la musique classique in 2005, an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Arts in
Niš, Serbia, and an ELLE Style Award for Musician of the Year in 2015. He is the winner of several
international violin competitions, such as Joseph Joachim in Hannover, George Enescu in Bucharest
and Stradivarius in Cremona.
Born in Serbia in 1985, Nemanja Radulović studied at the Faculty of Arts and Music in Belgrade, the
Saarlandes Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Saarbrücken, the Stauffer Academy in Cremona with
Salvatore Accardo and the world-renowned Conservatoire de Paris with Patrice Fontanarosa.
