This August, renowned pianist Vladimir Milošević makes his Atlanta debut at Emory University as part of the Donna and Marvin Schwartz Artist-in-Residence Program. Milošević’s residency includes a solo recital on Friday, August 30 at 6 p.m. in Emory’s Performing Arts Studio. This event is free and open to the public.
“Milošević is a rare talent,” says Laura Emmery, assistant professor of music theory at Emory. “He draws the listener into his world of interpretation from the very opening notes and keeps the audience engaged and mesmerized well after the piece has ended.”
Hailed as one of the most prominent Serbian pianists of his generation and lauded by critics internationally, Milošević will conduct a masterclass for a select group of Emory piano students during his residency on campus. “This will be an incredibly momentous experience for our students,” says Emmery, “to engage in a master lesson with Milošević, who has won many prestigious international piano competitions throughout Europe and the United States.”
“I am very much looking forward to my visit to Emory, as this will be a great opportunity for me to engage with students and professors” says Milošević. “I also hope the audience will enjoy all this beautiful music as much as I will enjoy making it onstage.”
Milošević’s Emory program includes works by Mozart, Chopin, Ravel, and Bach-Rachmaninoff. Of note is Ravel’s “Gaspard de la Nuit,” one of the most difficult compositions in all of the standard piano repertoire.
Pianist Vladimir Milošević delivers a solo performance Friday, August 30 at 6 p.m. in Emory’s Performing Arts Studio (1804 N. Decatur Rd). This program is free and open to the public and presented as part of the Donna and Marvin Schwartz Artist-in-Residence Program. For more information, visit arts.emory.edu.
One of the most prominent Serbian pianists of his generation, Vladimir Milošević has been proclaimed the winner of the 2013 “Rising Artist Concerto Presentation” by the New York Concert Artists & Associates and he featured with the NYCA Symphony Orchestra in 2014 at Merkin Concert Hall – Kaufman Music Center in New York City. To date, his performances have been lauded by the critics in many European cities, in such venues as the Salle Cortot in Paris, the Steinway Hall in London, the Konzerthaus in Berlin, the Teatro Tivoli in Porto, the Foerster Hall in Prague, the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv and also in Milan, Rome, Bari, Venice, Rennes, Nice and Lyon. As a winner of the competition “Concerti in Villa” in Vicenza (Italy), he made his debut recital at the prestigious Carnegie Recital Hall in New York in 2005, and was subsequently featured within the concert series “Velikani muzičke scene – Rising Stars” of the Kolarac Hall in Belgrade.
