Nemanja Radulovic, violin

Double Sens


The life of the young Franco-Serbian violinist Nemanja Radulovic is already a journey in itself. This child prodigy grew up in Serbia, took up the violin at the age of seven and then left the country of his birth when the storm clouds of civil war gathered in the 1990s, in order to compete in competitions all over Europe. His family settled in Paris when he was fourteen so that he could continue his musical education and he is now in demand from orchestras and concert halls worldwide. A fervent admirer of Paganini and Isaac Stern, he is equally at home with classical repertoire and folk tunes, which are a reminder that his heart is still in the Balkans. With his long jet-black hair, tattoos and bohemian air, he is not your typical performer on the major international solo concert circuit, yet his playing is characterised first and foremost by a virtuosity which makes him a most appealing performer.
