Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, led by Music Director Jaime Martín, presents the U.S. debut of Franco-Serbian violinist Nemanja Radulović performing Tchaikov-sky’s Violin Concerto in back-to-back concerts on Saturday, April 23, 8 p.m., at Glendale’s Alex Theatre, and Sunday, April 24, 7:00 p.m., at UCLA’s Royce Hall.
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. The program also features Martín conducting the rarely-performed overture to Joplin’s only opera, “Treemonisha,” and the complete orchestral suite of Ravel’s “Ma mère l’Oye,” which brings Mother Goose to life.
Radulović, an artist who seeks to broaden the boundaries of classical music, 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, among them 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, Salzburg Camerata, NDR Radiophilharmonie in Hanover, WDR Sinfonieorchester in Cologne, Orchestre Philharmon-ique 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, Queensland Symphony, Macao Orchestra, Malaysian Philharmonic, Cadaqués Orchestra and the Bilbao Orkestra Sinfonikoa. Radulović has an equal passion for the intimacy of chamber music and is an increasingly active recitalist on the international circuit.
