Event description

Description

Join Pianist Jelena Stojković on a musical journey through the diverse cultures of the East. The concert opens with Romanticism and one of its most prominent Russian representatives, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and his Scheherazade, followed by a foray to Maurice Ravel and his impressionistic sound worlds. With works by Marko Tajčević and his Seven Balkan Dances, Jelena Stojković draws connections to Serbia and interprets the contemporary sounds of contemporary composers: the German Dorothea Hofmann, who dedicated her compositions inspired by old Serbian songs to pianist Jelena Stojković (premiere); Arno Babajanyan from Armenia, Miroslav Štatkić from Serbia and Fazil Say from Turkey – the brilliant conclusion of a concert program that creates bridges between celebrated works of the past and the flowing compositional development of the present.

The transcultural exchange of music is of great importance to pianist Jelena Stojković, who studied at the conservatories in Belgrade,
Munich and Augsburg. During the last few years she has made successful appearances as a soloist and as a member of the Animando – Klaviertrios, the Bayerischen Philharmonie and the Quartett Quattro per Due (two pianos and two percussion instruments), which focuses on contemporary music. Her social commitment is evident in her concerts at the German Week of Culture in Cairo and the European Weeks in Passau. She is also a member of the multinational quartet Quattro per Due and the trio Contrasts, performs in international chamber music projects for transcultural understanding and gives solo concerts. She lectures at the Leopold Mozart Centre of the University of Augsburg and, since 2016, conducts Serbian Orthodox Church choir Sveti Jovan Vladimir in Munich.
